Principle #7 – Let’s be unstoppable in filling the pantry to overflowing!
Up, up, and away!!! We flew to Kraków, Poland, last Tuesday. It’s been so much fun to catch up with the URI and KDU teams! We are planning the fourth quarter of 2023 and 2024. Can you believe we only have a few months left of the year? And unfortunately, Putin’s war is still wreaking havoc and destruction in Ukraine and against Ukrainians. Unbelievable!!! That’s why it’s still important for us to continue our work to help our Ukrainian friends in Kraków. Together, we are making a difference in their lives.
We are promoting a “Stock the Pantry to Overflowing” campaign at the Świetlica Dębniki Community Center! We have raised over $1100.00 of our $3000.00 goal. For those who have donated, thank you so much for your contributions. The pantry had over 1400 visits last month, where Ukrainian women get much-needed food and hygiene products at no cost. There is a constant need for food for Ukrainian families. Putin continues to destroy the Ukraine wheat supply, which has created shortages. Not to mention, winter is coming, which usually brings more Ukrainian families. They need our help!
Let’s fill the pantry to overflowing! If you don’t need a tax receipt, please send money to my Venmo account, https://account.venmo.com/u/Cynthia-Henson-12, and we will use the funds to shop in Kraków. The more you donate, the more we can buy. No amount is too small. If you want a tax receipt, please use the PayPal account link at the bottom of the email and indicate “stock the pantry.”
“Relieve the crisis. Thoughtfully. With discipline and heart…Now” – URI mission statement
We aren’t the only ones helping the Świetlica Dębniki Community Center’s pantry. Plebeian Helpers for Ukraine donated food, hygiene, and paper products. A week later, all food and supplies were distributed to Ukrainian families.
Let’s work together and “fill the pantry to overflowing!” We will send you photos of the “stock the pantry” activities you supported. Thank you for being in my circle of light. I appreciate every one of you! Be positive and stay safe. #lovewins #peaceforukraine #makeadifference
