CISC Update: GoFundMe Campaign

October 20, 2022

Beginning in January 2017, the Cambridge Interfaith Sanctuary Coalition (of which First Church was a founding member) was an active network of volunteers walking alongside a family living in sanctuary at a time of great need. Many First Church members supported Diana and her family, and we celebrated with joy as they moved out of sanctuary in December 2021.

CISC is taking a pause to evaluate what could be next for the organization, but we are delighted to share an opportunity to continue financially supporting Diana and her family. A few months ago, CISC went through the meticulous process of evaluating how to best support Diana in this new time in her family’s life. You can support Diana directly by donating to her GoFundMe page, a safe and secure way for Diana to receive funds from this community. All of the money goes directly to her, allowing Diana to have independence and control over any donated funds.

Thank you for your generous support of our dear friends.
