Faith Family Community Fundraiser Corner
Welcome back! We hope you had a great summer! During these summer
months, we put the Faith, Family Community fundraiser on autopilot, and things
went smoothly. We wanted to bring to your attention the current numbers and
some answers to questions we’ve been asked. Drum roll please…
To date we have:
THANK YOU! This is terrific. We are on the right track!
Now for questions:
Q: Have you heard anything from the AOD?
A: Not yet, and we are banking what we're collecting until we
do hear from them.
Q: I turned in my pledge card, but haven’t done anything else. What
do I do next?
A: You should have received specially marked FFC envelopes when you turned in
your pledge card. If you didn’t, those envelopes are in the pamphlet center
when you walk in. Simply place your monthly, semi-monthly, or annual donation
in the envelope and place in the basket at Mass or turn into the office. Please
make sure to write “FFC” in the memo line if paying by check.
You may also pay online, and schedule payments, via our WeShare
donation process. You can find step-by-step instructions on our website.
Q: I haven't had the opportunity to pledge. What do I do?
A: It will never be too late to pledge. This is ongoing for the
next five years and we are grateful to accept all pledges throughout this time.
There are many ways to pledge:

(3) If you want to talk to one of the organizers of the FFC call
the parish office. They will happily put you in touch with one of the team
members to help answer your questions.
(4) Pray for the success and generosity of this fundraiser. It is
life giving to our family. It is our future.
(5) Always put FFC on any donation that you wish to go toward
this fundraiser. It is imperative that we keep this money separated from other
collections. The focus of this drive is to pay down our loan from the AOD.
Q: What is the FFCC's next step?
A: To invite the parish to join us in the parish hall on October
12th to celebrate the first complete quarter of our pledge drive. If you
haven't pledged yet, this is another excellent opportunity to do so. The FFC
team would like to answer any questions you have or get the answers for you.
