Back in June, 2014 one of OFY’s adoptive parents from a few years back contacted me and said that our agency was selected by her church to be the recipient of their ‘Loose Bills’ program for the month of July, 2014. I was invited to speak at their Saturday evening and Sunday morning services and describe what we are doing at OFY. I particularly emphasized our current efforts in Uganda.
What happens is that the church leaders gather the loose bills given by the congregation in the weekly collection plate/basket for the month and then turn that sum of money over to the designated organization. I recently received the contribution from the congregation of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and was overwhelmed by their generosity!
