The Waverly Family Resource  Center

Jim Parks & Sarah Ransom present the check to Liz Myers

This year In lieu of gifts for Mothers’ Day and Father’s Day, members of the VUPC congregation were invited to contribute to a fund to give a gift from the church to support local families. Donations from the congregation matched the contributions from the Mission and Benevolence and Music and Worship Committees resulting in the grand total reaching over $1200. On June 23rd Liz Myers, a board member, joined us in a Minute for Mission during the worship service to gratefully receive the check on behalf or The Waverly Family Resource Center.

The Waverly Family Resource Center, now in its 21st year, is a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension that provides drop in play space, parent-child activities and parenting workshops. As an example, its web site tells us that this summer it is conducting a six week Kids in The Kitchen program, "a hands on experience where children and parents have an opportunity to make recipes together. The recipes are simple, kid friendly and low cost!” 

Our thanks to the congregation whose spirit of giving made this project a success.
