MacMillan’s Fall Fundraising Campaign: We are very pleased to be offering MacMillan’s products as our fundraiser for fall of 2018. Our campaign will generate funds for general operating costs at Britannia United Church. With MacMillan’s Cookie Dough and Muffin Batter you can have fresh baked goods in only 20 minutes with no mixing and no mess! The batter comes to you frozen in convenient tubs. Unused portions can be refrozen. MacMillan’s also offers an array of many other delicious products including Gourmet Desserts, Pizza, Peanut Free & Kosher items. Beginning October 1, 2018 and continuing for approximately 6 weeks, we would like each person to help us raise funds. We would ask that everyone canvass family and friends for sales, if each person sold 5 items the church would raise approximately $2250 (based on 150 participants). Sale Instructions and Order forms are available in the vestibule.

They will share some of their pictures and impressions, with a break for Middle Eastern refreshments. A free-will offering will be collected to pay for expenses, with the remainder going to general operations. If you could put a poster up in your apartment or condominium building, please pick one up from the table in the vestibule.
