Toast Talks

Date 9 Nov, 2021

Category Newsletters & Toast Talks

Exactly one year ago, the COVID-19 pandemic upended our world, forcing us to change the way we operate and serve our community. On this anniversary, we invited our outstanding community to break bread with us virtually and look back on what we’ve learned and how we’ve grown.

We’re thrilled that 120 of our nearest and dearest were able to join us for annual report highlights and stories from the frontlines shared by members of our program team.

The March 19th session of Toast Talks was recorded; we hope you’ll watch below for a slice of how our community has rallied to support each other through COVID-19, and take note of a few breadcrumbs about the work to come at First United.

Toast Talks: June 2021

Date 9 Nov, 2021

Category Newsletters & Toast Talks

Toast Talks are a new series of information sessions during which members of the FIRST UNITED team offer updates, insights, and information about our work to our communities of faith, volunteers, donors, stakeholders and friends.

Couldn’t make it to the June edition of Toast Talks, or want to watch it again? Our June 24th session was recorded! For years, we’ve been exploring opportunities to enhance the level of community, connection, and care that we offer to our community members. We’ve dropped a few crumbs about what we’re planning, but now we’re eager to share a bigger slice!

In this edition we highlight our summer newsletter and some exciting details about the upcoming redevelopment of FIRST UNITED. Plus, Amanda Pellerine, our CVITP Income Tax Coordinator offers an inside look at the impact of our tax program—just one of the many programs that will grow and thrive as we move forward.

Learn more about the redevelopment, tax program, and check out a preview of our recent op-ed Truth and Reconciliation, A Living History in our Summer 2021 edition of First Things First, our triannual newsletter.
