Beacon House thanks UUCF

Beacon House CEO/Executive Director Kevin Hinton sent the following remarks about UUCF’s recent donation of backpacks and school supplies: “Thank you for the 25 backpacks and other school supplies that UUCF’s congregants donated to Beacon House students this year. For some of our families, the cost of backpacks and other supplies strains their budgets, and our students are grateful to receive nice, sturdy backpacks like the ones you selected. I appreciate all the wonderful things that UUCF does for our students and families greatly.”
