December Shared Basket - PADS

PADS Lake County http://www.padslakecounty.org/about , Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing emergency shelter, permanent supportive housing, and comprehensive resources to families with children and individuals experiencing homelessness in Lake County, Illinois.

 

For the first 4 weeks of December, 50% of all non-pledge contributions will go to PADS. If you choose to write a check, please indicate on the memo line your intent for your donation. For example: PADS will support that cause in full, SPLIT will be split between PADS and PCUUC, a blank memo line is applied in full to PCUUC, etc.  Envelopes are by the front entrance for cash donations. 

Congregant Care Fund

During this holiday season, we invite you to consider making a special financial gift to a new program that is being developed at Prairie Circle Unitarian Universalist Congregation - a Congregant Care Fund.  

 

Historically, the 13th Month solicitation has been an extension of your annual pledge for the general fund as a proverbial "13th month" pledge.  At this time, due to the success of the auction and the ongoing commitment of our pledging families, we find ourselves in a stable position for this budget year.  Therefore, the board sees the opportunity to jump-start a non-funded need within our church community.

 

PCUUC has demonstrated great caring capacity and financial support for agencies throughout the year via our sharing basket program as well as collection drives of clothing, canned food, and school supplies.  Within our own community there are times where a congregant is hit by an unexpected, unforeseen and unavoidable emergency expense whom could benefit by some financial assistance.  Currently, we do not have a fund to support this need.

 

The number of congregants who can be served by the Congregant Care Fund is subject to the availability of funds, which makes this fundraising effort critical. Additional details will continue to be worked out at the Board level and shared with the congregation as we move forward. The Congregant Care Fund is not intended to be ongoing nor a substitute for many local agencies that assist people on a regular basis. The scope and continuity of it will evolve with experience and level of funding given.

 

Please note on the memo line of your check that this is for “Congregant Care Fund” or "13th month pledge". In addition, we have several  congregants  willing to match Dollar for Dollar up to a total of $1,000 for "13th month pledge" totals!  If anyone else is willing and able to offer a matching opportunity, please let our Treasurer Sean Smetana know.  We appreciate the generosity of our congregational community.  People are valued for both financial and volunteer contributions.  Donations may be made at any time throughout the year, and as always, no donation should be a burden.
