Chalice Lighters and Faithify
There’s still time to donate to the Spring 2020 Chalice Lighters Call. Help the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbus, Indiana, be prepared to meet in person as they upgrade their professional staffing by increasing the pay for Sunday morning piano accompanists and by hiring a music director to lead regular choir rehearsals and performances on Sunday mornings. Contributions will be accepted through June 15, 2020. To donate online, visit https://www.uua.org/midamerica/giving/chalice-lighters.
There’s a new Faithify campaign that Chalice Lighters is supporting as well. The Social Action Committee of the Unitarian Church of Urbana-Champaign in Illinois has created a Faithify crowdfunding campaign to help ease the suffering and uncertainties of families in their community experiencing hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The congregation has selected three organizations in Urbana-Champaign whose outreach to families in their community are both reliable and effective. This is a Disaster Relief Campaign, which means ALL donations will be processed immediately. Chalice Lighters will contribute 10% of the final amount received by this campaign, up to $1000.
