FBC Outreach Team Receives Funds from Matthew 25 Grant

It is with great pleasure to announce that the FBC Outreach Team received $960.00 through the American Baptist Churches USA grant, “Matthew 25,” to buy 20 WRTA bus passes. These bus passes were delivered to Ascentria, the lead agency helping refugees who have been re-settled in Worcester. Ascentria will distribute the bus passes to their refugee clients so that they can attend English classes, get to appointments, go to the laundromat, and interviews, etc.– an activity we take for granted just by jumping in our cars. Lyn Stevens presented the bus passes to the staff at Ascentria today. Such a simple act of filling out a grant application was rewarded 100-fold with appreciation. We CAN make a difference.
