May 2016 is All-Faith Community Support Month. Over 500 congregations and communities of Rhode Island are asked to raise funds using their own traditions, such as second collections, special events, suppers, individual/family giving or budget donations, for example. You can view how WJAR TV 10 reported the kick-off HERE.
“This is a historic effort where all faith communities can help bring healing, peace and solace,” said Rev. Dr. Anderson, Executive Minister for the Rhode Island State Council of Churches.
Faith communities should send ONE check, payable to “SFMF”. Checks should clearly indicate the name of the Faith Community sending the check. Checks can be sent to either:
Rhode Island State Council of Churches, # 101, 100 Niantic Ave., Providence, RI 02907
Station Fire Memorial Foundation, 78 Wilbur Ave., Cranston, RI 02920
