Thank-you to those who have offered your time to volunteer for this project. This is the heart of what we are trying to do for sure! There are many areas to help with and many people are needed. If you would like to help, please email Leah. See below for contact information.
For those who are able to give financially, it is much appreciated. We have raised $98,000 of our $104,000 goal. Financial contributions are still being accepted to reach our goal and complete our fundraising efforts. Thank-you so much to those who have already contributed.
In response to questions we have received regarding financial donations to our sponsorship ministry:
We are accepting cash or cheques made out to Maple Ridge Community Church or MRCC. You can drop off the donation to the office, mail it (do not mail cash) or give on a Sunday morning.
You can send an Etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also donate using debit. This is only available on Sunday morning, 15 minutes before and after the service.
You can donate online through Canada Helps. Click HERE to be directed to their site.
If you are planning on giving monthly, please make out post dated cheques and hand in to the office. If you plan to give monthly using debit or Etransfer, please let the office know what your commitment is. This will help us in knowing what is coming in each month as our budget is based on these figures.
All donations will be tax receipted. Please provide complete contact information for that purpose, including middle initial.
YOU MUST CLEARLY INDICATE THAT IT IS FOR "REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP" In the memo line on the cheque, or on the envelope or in the Etransfer. This is important to make sure the funds are directed correctly.
We are working with MCC or Mennonite Central Committee as they are the ‘Sponsoring Agreement Holder’. We are so excited to be on this journey together and so grateful for all of your passion and desire to reach out with love and compassion to those in such great need.
Thank you for coming along side us as we prepare to help some people in real need of support. Your prayers are greatly appreciated as we embark on this year long journey !
