Sister Kathleen Coughlin's Blessing Before Chamber Board of Directors Meeting


Before the Chamber's Board of Directors Meeting on April 23, Sister Cathleen Coughlin, Senior Advisor to the President, University of the Incarnate Word, shared the following blessing:

Let us remember God is nearby and not far away as we pray.....

May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close remember those who have no options.

May we who have to cancel our trips remember those that have no safe place to go.

May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home. As fear grips our city, state, country and the world, let us choose love.

May we never again take for granted a handshake with a stranger, full shelves at the stores, dedicated essential personnel.

When this ends may we become more like the people we wanted to be - better for each other because of the worst!

Amen

Union Pacific Foundation Community Grants Application Now Open


Please be advised that the Union Pacific Foundation Local Community Ties Giving Program application cycle is currently open. The UP Foundation's focus areas are public safety, workforce development, and community spaces. This year, we are allocating additional funds to any organizations seeking funding to address critical community needs associated with Covid-19. I am particularly looking to help organizations providing direct services such as food banks or pantries, homeless shelters, and health care charitable organizations such as blood centers.

Covid related applications will receive prioritized review. Selected organizations that submit a grant application prior to April 30 will receive notification by mid May with funding distributed later that month. Similarly, covid related applications submitted before May 31st will be reviewed and notifications sent in mid June to grant recipients, with funds disbursed shortly thereafter. Non Covid applications will follow the traditional timeline - i.e. notifications in September and funds disbursement in October or November. Grants vary from $2,500 to $25,000.

My territory includes San Antonio, Austin, Smithville, El Paso, Midland-Odessa, Del Rio, Eagle Pass, Laredo, the Rio Grande Valley, and Corpus Christi. Please do help me spread the word to eligible organizations in any of these areas. Additional information and the application can be found here: https://www.up.com/aboutup/community/foundation/local-grants/index.htm.
If you have questions or want to discuss ideas, there will be a 30-minute meeting on Tuesday, April 28 at 10:15 a.m. I'll give a general overview of the program, and open it up for questions. The call in number is (402) 544-8901,1420358#.
