Church Funds Activated at Red Gate Farm
The Mission and Social Justice Committee has learned that the church’s $2,500 contribution to Red Gate Farm will be used this summer by youth from Springfield, MA.
Farmer/Director Ben Murray wrote, "Thank you for supporting this endeavor, and we are happy to confirm that your funding will finally be used for its intended purpose - allowing Springfield students to come to camp at a reduced tuition rate. Using your funds in combination with other support, we are offering the camp to families for $25 per student - which is enabling everyone to come to camp who wants to. I look forward to sharing another report in a couple of weeks as well as camp highlights and picture.”
