The 2018 Annual Conference approved a resolution “Encouraging a Special JFON [Justice For Our Neighbors] Offering at 2019 Annual Conference” (RS-18-215 ) with a goal of $30,000. The JFON board has pledged its support, and members are available to support your educational or fundraising efforts. To get a jump start on this mission goal, consider an Advent or Christmas Eve Offering for JFON. To learn more about JFON, visit their website or read our story about JFON’s recent dinner/auction fundraisers.
Resources available: Share this inspiring video about JFON's work nationally and contact Gary Richards, JFON Board chair, to request brochures, JFON logo stickers for coin collection bottles (a 2-liter soda bottle filled with nickels is about $150) or other fundraising. 
Additional resources will be mailed directly to churches in early 2019. Thank you for partnering with us to achieve our goal! Donations should be sent to New England Justice for Our Neighbors, c/o Belmont-Watertown UMC, 421 Common St., Belmont, MA 02478
