Prior to the pandemic, Cedars held a Special Collection monthly for community outreach as a way to educate our congregation about the work of various non-profit organizations that reflect our values, and to channel our generosity in support of them. Beginning this month, we are reinstituting Special Collections as we reinvigorate our social justice efforts.
For the month of March, the Social Justice Committee has chosen to collect money for aid to the Ukrainian people as the humanitarian crisis unfolds. All money donated in the Sunday offering on March 20th will benefit The Ukraine Crisis Fund of CARE. Your emergency gifts will support their efforts to reach 4 million with immediate aid and recovery, food, water, hygiene kits, psychosocial support, and cash assistance — prioritizing women and girls, families, and the elderly.
CARE is a 501(c)(3) that works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice with a particular focus on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
If you would like to receive a tax deduction for your donation, please write a check payable to CARE USA with Ukraine Crisis Fund in the memo line and place it in the March 20th coffering basket or send it to the Cedars Church Office by March 25th.
