FAMILY PROMISE UPDATE: This program is in full swing and has had two families receiving benefits for an extended duration; one family has successfully been placed in a sustainable home. There are multiple new homeless families currently in the process of being accepted into the program. Family Promise has obtained a van to ease transportation to and from churches and the Day Center in Lyons and to provide rides for employment opportunities. Their recent fundraiser, “Bed City”, took place on May 11th. A grant was received that will double all monetary donations given in 2019!
In late June, the Faith United Methodist Church in Wolcott is slated to host one or two families for a week. They would like CCBT’s help with meals & volunteers. There will be more information pending with sign-up sheets in the future. Contact person is Jill Lee @ #315-553-2243 for further information or questions. This program is a wonderful ecumenical effort. Thank you for your interest and willingness to help!
