How Bazaar Proceeds Helped our Church and Community

When all was said and done, the 2022 Bazaar netted a profit of $6,239! At our January meeting, we decided how to help our community with the profits.

First, because of the need of the church and the amount of help from so many in our congregation during the bazaar, we decided to support the church budget with $2,000 from the 2022 proceeds. In our last report on the bazaar, we shared that we gave $1,000 to the church in December. We did, but that reflected 2021 bazaar proceeds since not all those funds were disbursed.

Other organizations supported were:

  • Salary support for Dee Finch at Seneca Street United Methodist Church in Buffalo

  • Buffalo Peacemakers violence prevention program

  • Harvest House in Buffalo with ministries for children and families in need

  • Journey's End Refugee Services

  • Kathleen Mary House in Hamburg for those fleeing domestic violence situations

  • Peace of the City children and youth programming in Buffalo

  • Project Mona House for those experiencing homelessness, orphaned and exploited through human trafficking

  • The United Methodist House in Chautauqua

  • Our own Prayer, Care and Share Ministry

We also paid an annual pledge to the Niagara Frontier District United Women in Faith. All of these donations, including the church support, totaled $5,000.

Thank you for helping us help our church and community!

We welcome all women to join our efforts by getting involved in our monthly Sarah Circle meeting at church on the second Thursday at 7 p.m.
