During this time, we know the situation may arise where some of our members need to stay home for an extended period of time. We are organizing a team to help members who may need our support with delivery of food, medicine, or meals. We need you to notify us of any critical needs you may be experiencing.

We want to know if you find yourself unable to get essential groceries, medicine, or prepare meals.

Our Share the Care members are ready to deliver.  Please email us at sharethecare@anchorageuuf.org to let us know of your need. 

To volunteer for the Share the Care team Email sharethecare@anchorageuuf.org 

Adding your name to our Share the Care volunteer list means you may get SignUpGenius emails where you can then sign up to deliver food, medicine, or a meal.

 

Want to talk to a Minister?

Rev. Ruth Greenwood and Becca Bernard, a trained chaplain and seminarian, will be available for pastoral care emergencies in the gap from Rev. Shelley leaving and the new contract arriving. Please feel free to contact them if you find yourself needing help, especially in this pandemic time. They can provide compassionate listening and referrals for further help. They can also help with confidential emergency financial assistance through the Ministerial Caring Fund if you are finding yourself in a tight spot. Please contact them directly:  Rev. Ruth Greenwood, reverent.ruth@gmail.com; Becca Bernard, rbernard.ak@gmail.com

Wondering How to Ask For Ministerial Caring Fund Help?

Many of us are finding that we need some help to get through these times, finding our usual employment gone or diminished, or our savings dwindling.  Reverend Shelley can help with some financial assistance through the AUUF Ministerial Caring Fund.  For example, the fund has helped folks pay a medical bill, keep utilities running, pay the rent or receive gift cards to Fred Meyer for food, gas and other needs.  This fund is here for you.  We find ourselves in emergency mode these days.  If you'd like to learn more about how to access some assistance, please contact ​​​Rev. Ruth Greenwood, reverent.ruth@gmail.com; Becca Bernard, rbernard.ak@gmail.com
