Dear Family and Friends of Park Place:
Park Place Church is the very heart of our religious activities for many of us. Some of us have been baptized or married in our beautiful sanctuary. In addition to offering Sunday worship services, we continue to serve our community through outreach programs such as the soup kitchen and the thrift shop that provides low cost necessities to community members. We host special Praise and Worship services the last Sunday evening of each month; each year we offer a May breakfast, a Christmas on the Hill bazaar and other fun activities.
However, you may not be aware that Park Place needs to complete some upgrades to the physical building to meet the City and State fire codes. Because we have everyone’s safety in mind, we are calling the fund raising campaign, “Safe In Prayer”.
Our goal is to raise $60,000 in order to install the necessary smoke and heat sensors, as well as the required electronic connection to the Pawtucket Fire Department. We have already selected the electrical contractor to complete the work and he is willing to complete the project in stages as our finances allow. Although, we may be allowed to complete the required upgrades in stages, please understand this work is required to ensure the safety of everyone who uses our building. Therefore, we should do everything we can to collect and/or raise the necessary funds to expedite the completion of the work.
We will continue to hold fundraising events such as the Chopstick Auction, the ever popular Cabaret and other events for the benefit of our “Safe In Prayer” campaign. However, we are in need of your donations to accomplish this work. We felt sure that once you were aware of this need you would be willing to make an initial donation and hopefully subsequent donations to complete this work in the time required by the City and State authorities.
We understand not everyone will be able to help us with a cash donation. We hope you will consider donating goods or volunteer to serve at some of these events. As a 501(c)3 organization, we will provide a tax receipt for all donations. You can donate by check or on line (by going to our website).
Your ongoing support of the mission of Park Place Church is deeply appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns or want more details about this important fundraising effort, please contact us at 401-726-2800.
Your Co-Laborers in Christ’s Service,
The “Safe In Prayer” Campaign Committee
