Calvary Events…

THANK YOU!!  PR 2 PR Puerto Rico Fundraisers

     In September, members of the PR 2 PR Puerto Rico Mission Teams hosted 3 seperate fundraisers. The Envelope Fundraiser raised $229 for equipment and tools to be used by our Mission Teams in Puerto Rico.     
     On Monday, September 30th, two fundraisers were held: a Meal and a Silent Auction. Together, these two fundraisers raised over $13,000! So many generous people from Calvary and throughout the community helped with these events. Many volunteered, cooked, cleaned, set up, ate, donated/collected or bought items from the auction.
    We wish to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your help and generosity. All proceeds from these fundraisers will be used for tools and supplies to assist our Mission Partner, San Pedro Lutheran Church (in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico) in their rebuilding efforts.
     There are four mission groups from Calvary traveling to Puerto Rico over the next few months (one in November; two in February; and one in June) to work with on-going efforts to rebuild and recover following Hurricane Maria in 2017. Please watch for updates and reports as we travel to Puerto Rico and work on our mission.
Continued fundraising efforts are underway. Donate to the cause.
