Fundraising Ministry Report for 2020

Fundraising Ministry Report for 2020

Each year, a significant portion of our budget is met through church fundraisers held throughout the year. We have been blessed with ongoing suppers, fairs, pet clinics, and flea markets. In addition, members have brought together additional fundraisers such as a coffee house, and online affiliate programs to boost our totals. Thank you so much for those that worked with us on all of the events this year.

We started off the year with 2 incredible suppers–a take-out Turkey supper in February followed by our Corned Beef supper in March. In addition to our members and friends, we had help from the Ambassadors from Attleboro High School, and students from North Attleborough High School. I can’t say enough about how great they were! In addition, I would like to thank Dr Peter Granville and our volunteers for running the monthly Pet clinics while our church was open. We look forward to getting back to the pet clinics and being able to provide this great service to our community.

With Oldtown closing in March for the Covid-19 Pandemic, we had to cancel all in-person fundraising events for the safety of our members and community. Since then, Ed Clavette has been able to replace some of our yard sale income with online sales through Facebook and delivering donations to Savers.

Unfortunately, we were unable to hold our 3 fairs this year–our Mother’s Day Vendor Fair, Oldtown Founder’s Fair and Auction, and our Christmas Vendor Fair. Harder than the loss of the revenue was the loss of the fellowship we all feel while hosting in-person events. With continuing concerns, we are looking for new ways to work together to raise the funds needed for the church–if you have any ideas, please feel free to talk with us. We are grateful to Dyer-Lake for purchasing our turkey reserves to support local families in need during the holidays.

We hope we are able to get back together in 2021 and would love to have you each join us at one event or many.
