The recipient for this Sunday’s Second Sunday Outreach Offering is Prepare for Success!
Prepare for Success (PFS) is in its 21st year of providing back packs and school supplies to Howard County students from low-income families. Founded in the faith community and long supported by UUCC, it is now a formal partnership that includes the HCPSS and the Community Action Council.
Pre-pandemic there were over 13,000 HCPSS students, more than 1 in 5, who qualify for support. While we hope the pandemic is receding in Howard County, vulnerable families are still faced with many uncertainties and challenges. Last year PFS served over 3,700 students.
Susan and Roy Appletree have served as volunteer co-coordinators for the past 14 years. Roy will present during worship as Susan is scheduled to meet with volunteers to prepare for a major packing. You can learn more at www.prepareforsuccess.org.
