UPDATE FROM MISSION COMMITTEE

The Mission Committee thanks the congregation and Open Door parents for their generous donations for Ukraine.  We raised:

  • $1,387.50 for the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Program and earmarked the funds to go directly to their work in Ukraine.
  • $1,480.63 for the Ukrainian American Cultural Center of New Jersey and St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church. They are working together to regularly send items such as medical supplies and strollers to Ukraine.  We also used $1000 dollars from our Mission funds to purchase the most urgently needed medical supplies. The 6 used strollers and 5 boxes of medical supplies that were collected were dropped off at the Cultural Center and will be included in the next shipment to Ukraine.

Many thanks to all who participated in both of these drives.  We continue to pray for the people of Ukraine and an end to this devastating war.
