FAQ about the Stronger Together Capital Campaign

  • What is the goal of the campaign?

    • $80,000.  This is based on the current estimates to complete all projects.   

  • What it the time frame for the campaign?

    • Please send your commitments to UMEM by February 14, 2021.

  • What is the priority of the projects?

    • Paying off the loan for initial repairs to the roof in Salem.

    • Completing the replacement of the leaking roof over the thrift shop in Salem. The thrift shop staff are currently forced to put buckets on the floor and move inventory to dry locations whenever the weather turns--a new roof is needed now! 

    • Building storage and sorting facilities will streamline the operation and processing of donations for the ministry.  Currently, the ministry uses spaces meant for other purposes to perform these tasks.  

    • Making the bunkhouse a four-season capable building will enable the ministry to offer temporary shelter to families literally left out in the cold by losing their homes to fires, frozen pipes, and other disasters.  A winterized bunkhouse will give the ministry the option to offer temporary shelter the next time disaster strikes a family in the local area.
