This is a Disaster Relief campaign. The “All-or-Nothing” goal is removed. All pledges made will be processed.

On October 10, 2018, Hurricane Michael made landfall just east of Panama City, FL.  Michael was just two mph shy of a Category 5 according to USA Today.  The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Bay County was hit hard.  The main building sustained roof damage but is otherwise ok.  The two Religious Education buildings sustained much more significant damage.  And approximately 63 trees have been broken and must be removed.  In addition to the damage to our church home, many congregation members’ homes have been damaged as well, and some have already been declared a total loss by their insurance adjusters.  This storm will take decades to recover from.

And yet, we have a lot to be grateful for.  Every person connected to this congregation survived the storm.  We have received some financial assistance for our main building, tree removal, and even to help some people in our community who were the most impacted by the storm.  What we haven’t found funding for yet, is to repair or replace our Religious Education buildings.  That’s where you come in.

As the community is working to put the pieces back together, our children need somewhere to gather.  They need a little glimmer of hope.  Maybe you can be that light?

This campaign is for $5,000 but that’s just a start to get us going.  Any help you can give would be appreciated.
