(Toward the Relief of Urgent Emergencies) is a fund administered by Carol Stone, a parishioner. It was begun by a deacon in our diocese who also was a social worker. Late on a Friday, a man appealed for money at the social service agency where she worked. He was out of work, had a family to support, and was desperate. He did not fit the guidelines for help. The local weekend newscaster reported a robbery during which the robber was killed. It was the same man. The deacon realized that even a small amount could have fed his family or gone toward the rent. She began a fund at her church for those who “fell between the cracks” of receiving immediate financial assistance. She named it the T.R.U.E. Fund. About every Episcopal Church in the diocese has a T.R.U.E. Fund. Your designated donation will help someone on a one-time basis with rent, electricity, and other necessities.
These payments are made directly to the provider (the landlord, FPL, voucher with restrictions for Publix/Winn-Dixie). The evaluation process includes verification of ID, address, and obligation; the applicant must be a resident of Port Salerno and on a one-time basis. Please give generously to support this ministry to our immediate neighbors who are in need.
