Trunk or Treat

“Trunk of Treat” is a safe trick or treating event where those who would like to hand out Halloween treats decorate the trunk of their car, park their vehicles in our parking lot and hand out candy to each child dressed in costume who goes from trunk to trunk collecting treats.  We charge a price of five dollars per child for admission.  We also raffle gifts and sell food for raising funds.

All proceeds from this event go towards the Kyle Cruz Scholarship at the Wilderness School located in East Hartford, Connecticut. Kyle was a teenage member of our church family who sadly passed away six years ago this autumn.  To honor his memory, we sponsor this event for the benefit of the Wilderness School, which is a prevention, intervention and transition program for at-risk adolescents from Connecticut.   The Wilderness School offers high impact 20-day and 5-day wilderness programs intended to foster positive youth development.  Over the past years, we have raised slightly more than $18,000.00.

We are asking for your support for this fundraiser through either a gift contribution for our raffles or a cash donation. For donating a raffle gift, please contact the church office at (203) 324-6715.   For cash donations, please make checks payable to Union Memorial Church and write “Trunk or Treat” on the memo line.  Please note that your contribution is tax deductible and is greatly appreciated.  If you request, we can send to you our church’s tax exempt 501(c)(3) information and a receipt.

Touch a Truck

It’s that time of the year again to support our Diaper Bank!

This event was established to help raise diapers and funds to support our Diaper Bank program here in Stamford. Our program helps parents in Stamford by providing them with a bag of diapers and wipes once a month. This helps the family offset the rising cost of purchasing diapers for their child(ren).

Each year we ask individuals and/or companies who own trucks to participate, that way the children who come to the event have a wonderful time. Each year we are blessed to have participation from The Stamford Police Department, the police bomb task force, Stamford Fire Department, EMS, the Ferguson Library on wheels, garbage trucks, pick-up trucks, food trucks, and many more. We also have had small “booths” with local vendors, doctors/dentists, organizations, and agencies participate and promote their services.

Celebrating the “birthday of the Church,” joining our congregation for worship will be three other Christian congregations—the Jesus Family Tamil Church, the Ebenezer Pentecostal Church, and the Haitian American Center of the New Jerusalem Church. These four congregations gather weekly at various times for worship in our building, but once a year on Pentecost Sunday all four congregations gather together—a gathering that demonstrates the multicultural nature of the worldwide Church.
