UCC Medical Debt Forgiveness

 
Watch this video as the United Church of Christ’s quarterly medical debt forgiveness campaign continued in St Louis over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. Twelve St. Louis and Missouri Mid-South Conference congregations and the Deaconess Foundation joined forces to come up with over $100,000 in donations. As medical debt at the collection agency level can be purchased for pennies on the dollar, these UCC institutions turned that $100,000 into $12.9 million of debt forgiveness for over 11,000 St. Louis poverty-stricken families.
 

 
The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action. With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world. The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where “…they may all be one” (John 17:21).
