The FRF is set up and ready to receive requests. The response to the Easter Offering was what we have come to expect from this generous congregation. So, we believe that we can respond in a meaningful way to those for whom the virus has meant financial difficulties. The fund is intended to support the congregation and the wider community with these difficulties. These challenges could be household expenses, medical expenses (including person protective equipment), housing needs or other virus related needs. Our goal is to be as helpful as possible while keeping in mind the breadth and length of the shock waves of Covid-19. We expect the need to be long lived and varied and hope to be there to respond throughout. If you want to receive financial help during this pandemic, there is a simple and confidential form here
There will be a simple paper application form for the FRF in the church lobby once we are back out into the world. Confidentiality will be maintained with Pastor Judy as the only team member to receive the application and know your identity. The other team members are Jenny Splaine, David Peretti and Lisa Loughlin. Of course, you may not have a computer and you are dutifully staying in your home, so you can always call Judy: 781-820-2410.
