Good Works Committee Report to Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business

18 April 2010

The Good Works Committee met on 11 April 2010. We have a brief report.

Report:
We talked with our resident Kathleen Burke and were impressed with her care and sensitivity in handling requests for donations and favors. Kathleen has had a kitty of $50 of which $25 remains that she may dispense as seems appropriate to those in need. We support Kathleen in her efforts to do the very occasional favor for those she knows but underscored our concern for her safety. When an organization asks for support, Kathleen will refer their request to Good Works and if a request for a favor makes Kathleen uncomfortable, she will refer the request to Ministry & Oversight.

The Goods Works Committee will resume our efforts to champion the organizations we support by asking Members and Attenders active in these organization to speak about the good works of these organizations at Rise of Meeting during the announcements period. We will strive to time these presentations to showcase urgent need or recent participation in the organization and its works by our Attenders and Members.

The Good Works committee continues to visit the question of whether the we should be involved in crafting a service project for the Meeting. At this time, we will wait to hear of the discussion on this matter at the Regional meeting and season our potential recommendation. Some among us wish that the Peace and Social Concerns committee might be reconstituted to take on this work; but, none among us, are called to this task at this time.

Respectfully submitted by the Good Works Committee,

Wyn Lewis (Convener)
Rebecca Allahyari
Peggy Giltrow
Alan Rogers
