Help care for BUUF’s Buildings and Grounds
It looks like the weather will be with us this coming Saturday for the Spring Work Day at BUUF! Unless Ray is wrong, and it’s pouring rain, we’ll meet at 9am in the BUUF parking lot, and continue until about noon. Rain date is May 23rd.
Our top priority is to put down black plastic over the area where the pine trees stood, but there will be several other things you can do – from digging, to lightweight weeding to washing windows. Work boots and gloves recommended, garden tools requested. Does anyone have a wheelbarrow they could bring? Come and spend a day outdoors and reconnect with folks at BUUF! If you have any questions please contact Dottie Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-293-3672.
It's that time of year! Please show your support for BUUF in the form of an annual pledge. Your support helps us keep the lights on and the programs running, which we need more now than ever in 2020.

We hope you will join us for a fund-raising dinner for Dreaming for Change on Wednesday, September 4th at 6:00 p.m., 381 East King Street. Dreaming for Change is a charitable organization in Burundi striving to help women develop small businesses, teach families to cultivate kitchen gardens, and provide daily meals for children who lack basic nutrition. The feeding program is an emergency effort to provide one meal of fortified porridge to malnourished children five days a week. When the feeding program began, the Dreaming for Change team expected 50 children to come, but 180 attended the first day. Now the numbers are regularly 250 or higher. When you purchase a ticket for this dinner, you will join in our commitment to raise funds needed to sustain the feeding program.
Tickets are $50 per plate or $275 for a table of six. Please write checks to Barry Thomas with Dreaming for Change in the memo line or Paypal firstname.lastname@example.org. Please prepay by Paypal or by check mailed to Barry Thomas, P. O. Box 1332,Jefferson, NC 28649
