Help Erase Medical Debt this Tuesday

In October, UCC leaders announced that 5,888 families on the South Side of Chicago had had their medical debt forgiven through the work of churches and agencies of the United Church of Christ. The church was able to purchase and retire $5.3 million for just $38,000. The UCC has called for a national effort to retire even more medical indebtedness with a “Giving Tuesday” campaign with a goal of $50,000.

Gifts to this Giving Tuesday campaign will be used to erase debt of people living below the poverty level, who are facing insolvency, and for whom medical debt is 5% or more of annual income. The goal level will forgive approximately $5,000,000.
