Caring Tree Update
03/1/23 – Co-Chair Transitions
The Caring Tree would like to announce that Marla McFadden will join Jeanette Clawson as a Coordinator until the end of this fiscal year. Karol Niemann will be leaving after a year and a half of service as co-chair. Thank you Karol for all your hard work and welcome back to the Caring Tree, Marla! We are looking for volunteers to serve as a Coordinator when Marla steps down on July 1. Come and join the heart of our beloved community.
10/26/22 – Card Writing Team & Introductions
Hello fellow Reebers, I’m Jeanette Clawson. Karol Niemann and I are your new Caring Tree co-coordinators. We are getting settled into the job and have submitted our charge to the Board for review. We will be having opportunities for you to sign up for some of the different teams after services either in person or on zoom. After the isolation of Covid we all will benefit if we can reach out to each other to request and/or offer help.
This month I would like to tell you about our card writing team. When information comes to us from calls, emails, sharing joys and sorrows or direct communication we want to demonstrate our connection with you by having a team member send a card of care, celebration, or condolence. We will provide the stamps and return address labels as well as cards (or you can use your own) to team members who will send them out to friends and members of our beloved community as appropriate.
If you are interested in joining this team we will have opportunities for you to sign up after services both in person and on zoom. Or you can contact Jeanette Clawson and Karol Neimann through the contact form on the JRUUC website.
