High 5 for Cameron

April 6, 2024

Lent Mission Project |  High 5 for Cameron  |

WE GREW IT MORE THIS WEEK! |  $3,580.00

| WELL DONE – FIRST ROCHESTER!  | AS OF PALM SUNDAY TOGETHER YOU RAISED $3,050 |

Our special Lent Mission Giving opportunity encouraged the congregation to give for the 5 weeks of Lent any multiple of $5 toward their special inner-city barber apprertice program, Cameron Cuts, that has had State Grant funding put on hold by County Executive Adam Bello. We named this 100% pass-through offering, High 5 for Cameron. The inidividual giving project helped us raise together $3,050.

____________________________

Giving multiples of $5 for 5 Sundays of Lent  |  We ask that you challenge yourself to do a little extra this Lenten season for Cameron Community Ministries (CCM). Together we can make a difference by giving a High 5 for Cameron. For the five (5) Sundays of Lent, we ask you to make a commitment to give weekly any increment of 5 – $5, $15, $50, $250 – to the ongoing work of CCM. Considering Monroe County’s hold on grant funding for our underserved neighbors, these extra funds will help carry them through until the grants are reinstated especially for their new program Cameron Cuts*.

What can you give each week?

Can you stretch yourself a little through Lent?

Make your commitment and give generously. Use High 5 on check or online!

Together we can make a real difference!

If 50 individuals give just $5 for 5 weeks, that is only $25 each, but together it is $1,250.  If we increase that by $10 to $15 each, we then raise $3,750!  Yes, together we can make a real difference.
