We set our goals high for Mission:1 and we’ve been working diligently to meet all of them.
Yesterday I spent some time separating out all the postcards that we filled out last Sunday to get a good count and make them easier for mailing. We had a goal of 1,111 letters to elected officials. We are at a total of 218 right now. (We were hoping for as many as 500 from last Sunday alone!) We still have 800 cards to go and we hope that you’ll help us meet our goal over the coming weeks. Perhaps there was an official that you wanted to write to but didn’t have time to jot down their name and address?
The United Church of Christ is taking a stand against hunger in America and worldwide and Old First hopes to help urge our elected officials to support legislation that will not take food away from anyone who needs it.
You can help by taking a few postcards to fill out and sharing them with your friends or colleagues. We’ll have postcards for the remainder of the month at Social Hour.
