During the last week of June, 2024, CSCC will be taking a multigenerational service trip to Western Maine. With the MATE Housing Ministry (www.missionattheeastward.org) and our friends at The Dover Church, UCC in Dover, MA, we will gather our time and talent to serve people in the Farmington, Maine area stay in their homes who without our help would not be able to. Volunteers will stay on the University of Maine, Farmington campus and utilize their cafeteria for meals.
CSCC Members and Friends (ages 14+) are invited to join this service trip which will take place the week of June 23-29, 2024. This service trip helps people in need stay in their homes by doing home repairs they could otherwise not afford. This benefits the elderly, single parent families, low-income households, veterans, and those with disabilities and special challenges. Volunteer work teams share their talent and time with homeowner clients to create healthy housing for the underserved by building or rebuilding ramps, painting, and general home repairs. All projects are based on volunteer skills and abilities.
We ask that you reserve your spot with a $250 non-refundable deposit (checks should be made out to "CSCC" with "Maine service trip" written in the memo; payment may also be made by Venmo, credit/debit card, or Paypal). Any expenses beyond this deposit will be made by group fundraising throughout the year. Once you have reserved your spot with your deposit, you will need to complete the MATE paperwork and return it to the church office.
If you are interested in finding out more about the trip, please contact the church at 508-697-6016 or office @ csccucc.com, or email Terry Reynolds at terryr0647 @ hotmail.com. You do not need to be a member of Central Square Congregational Church, UCC to join in this life-enriching experience.
Please join us for an information session about the trip on Sunday, October 15, at 11am in the Fireplace Room of the church. There is no obligation in attending this meeting.
