From UCP to Family Promise of Greater Rochester

Thank you to everyone who donated a gift to our adopt-a-family through Family Promise of Greater Rochester (formerly RAIHN). Our family was a mother and son.
We supplied all the gifts on our family's wish list this Christmas season. They were dropped of at Family Promise and are waiting to be opened on Christmas day!
