We are pleased to announce that our gift-giving appeal was a big success! Thanks to the generosity of our UUCP congregation, we will be able to provide gift-wrapped clothing, shoes, and a special interest gift to each of the 6 children in a Ugandan refuge family—plus grocery gift cards!
THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED AND MADE A DIFFERENCE!!!!
This year, UUCP is sponsoring Christmas gift-giving for a refugee family from Uganda whose kids go to the Maryland School (which we also support). This family has 6 children ranging in age from 15 years to 9 months. Our hope is that we can have enough donations to spend about $35 on clothes, $20-25 on shoes and $15 on a special interest gift for each child, either through actual purchase or a cash donation. It is best if we can keep the gifts to each child at about the same value.
In addition, we hope to provide the family with $200 in gift cards to Food City and Fry’s for groceries.
