Time, Talent and Treasure at Northlake
What an awesome stewardship campaign! More than half of people stepped up and increased their pledges to fund the long-range plans . Hooray! We heard from 81 households about pledging, many of them taking advantage of the automatic monthly withdrawals (I know that makes my pledging more consistent).
Many thanks to those who made the Cottage Dinners possible – the hosts as well as the folks who facilitated pledging. Thanks to the Stewardship Campaign Committee, both official and unofficial members.
But thank you most of all to the entire community for your generous spirit! It is delightful being a part of Northlake.

We just received a donation check from PCC for $1084.50. This is 5% of money NUUC members added to their scrip cards. If you shop at PCC but don’t do it through a scrip card from NUUC, please see Amar Singh to buy a card with a small amount of money on it. You can add money to it just before you buy groceries, so that a percentage of your purchase goes toward the FUNdraising campaign.
We also recently received a check from Kroger (Fred Meyer) for $ 41.10 as a reward for purchases there by those of you who tied your Fred Meyer cards to the NUUC FUNdraising campaign. Every little bit helps! The link for people to join for this rewards program if they have a FM rewards card is fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. Steve Rosen reports that he just joined and that it’s pretty easy. You have to create an online account and register your card, and then search for and select Northlake. It only takes a few minutes.
Reminder: If you decide to shop at Amazon.com, there are a couple of links on “FUNdraising Opportunities” on the Northlake home page that will take you to the Amazon links page: http://northlakeuu.org/fundraising/amazon/
If you prefer not to shop at Amazon, sign up at DailyGood.com for a membership and shop through GoodShop at their member stores. They don’t give us as big a percentage, but it is an alternative. Also, if you (or your children or grandchildren) like basic computer games to keep your brain sharp, they have those, too: search on GoodSearch for GoodGames and take your pick.
