STRETCH GOAL ADDED! Electric Systems replacement costs require additional funding.
On Thursday, January 4, the UU Meeting House of Provincetown was flooded by the incredibly high tide/winter storm combination which slammed Cape Cod and other coastal areas. The 1847 building took on up to 6 inches of water on the first floor.
Thankfully the sanctuary in Provincetown is on the second floor, but significant damage and property loss occurred in the parish hall, offices, and meeting rooms.
At one point we were looking into the trap door beneath the church and saw fish swimming there!!!
Important Note: This is a special DISASTER RELIEF campaign. All pledges will be processed immediately. This will give the congregation access to desperately needed funds as soon as possible.
This week has brought a new kind of flood… of volunteers and support. But also some challenges. It looks like we will have to replace almost all of our electrical system. This is going to be a huge project. We need to make extensive repairs to our elevator. We are tearing out walls up to two feet that were compromised by the flood waters, and we learned that in addition to immediately known losses our refrigerator was also lost during the flood, as well as several wall cabinets.
Any additional funding will be put to good use immediately. We thank you!!!
