Wisconsin UCC church, community raise money for Maria-battered Puerto Rico

 

The small community of Platteville, Wis., rallied around its local United Church of Christ congregation to help raise more than $3,300 for hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico. The congregation turned an evening of planned family friendly fellowship — roasting marshmallows over a fire in the parking lot and singing old church camp songs  — into a fundraiser for the people of Puerto Rico. And as the news reported out of the U.S. commonwealth became more devastating, several members of the wider community joined in to help. Click here to read the UCC News story.
