Marie Suzette, Emmanuel, and their two young children send a great big "GRACIAS" to Grace UCC! With the gift certificates provided to them this holiday season they were able to purchase cement to use in the construction of their new home, a full size refrigerator, and a Christmas tree complete with decorations for their season celebrations.
Marie shared with Grace volunteer Jenn Newton that they did not have the funds to purchase a Christmas tree this year. The family lost their home and possessions in the 2017 Hurricane Maria. The gift certificates provided to them from Grace UCC allowed them to purchase the tree and the other items for their new home.
They send a great big Gracias and Merry Christmas to you all!
Grace UCC is sponsoring the Rivera Santos family as part of the “Juntos Together” project, and were matched with us with help of volunteer Yolanda Baker, from Church of the Redeemer in Morristown. For more information please see the flyer on the bulletin board at the back of the church on Sunday.
