Become an ANGEL

Submitted by Nancy Barrett

The Upper Room Angels was founded in August 1989 as a financial support group for the Upper
Room Hospitality Ministry’s Food Bank and Soup Kitchen. The purpose was to provide a source
of weekly income, supplement the random donations of food, money and services which the
Ministry was wholly dependent.

Reading and discussing articles in the newspapers which appealed for food to replenish the bare
cupboards (at the Upper Room) wasn’t enough for me. I felt I needed to do something and I
contemplated both food and money? I came to the conclusion that money would better provide
their needs.

I thought about what can I give and came up with the idea of $52, one dollar for each week of the
year. I figured my personal donation of $52 would be of little help but if more people similarly
would donate $52, that would help to raise a good amount of money and help the Ministry
purchase food and supplies needed to assist their clients.
The angels is non-denominational.

Since its inception August 1989 the angels have raised $2,112,987 at a minimum cost. To become an angel, Membership is $52.
