As many of you know, we challenged ourselves during the month of March to raise at least $1,000 to purchase grocery gift cards for the Cards for Kids Campaign.  These DYECH (Dennis Yarmouth Ecumenical Council for the Homeless) gift cards are for children and their families in the Dennis/Yarmouth School District who are experiencing food insecurity.  Our congregation was invited to join with other area congregations for this initiative, including the Northside United Methodist Church, the Dennis Union Church and the First Congregational Church of Yarmouth.  It’s wonderful to be able to celebrate that we not only reached our goal, but more than doubled it!  People joyfully give $2,215 to this campaign.  As a church we also made the commitment to match every gift given, so the South Yarmouth UMC will be donating $4,430 to children and their families in our local schools!  What an important and inspiring witness we’re offering to our community. We thank Eve Hoffman for her leadership on this campaign including her wonderful visual aide that we used in the sanctuary.  Thank you all for your generosity and faithfulness.
