Alabama 2020 Census - Why does it matter? Thirteen Billion Dollars in Federal Funding! An accurate census is important for: Health Care; Education; Utility Infrastructure; Roads and Bridges; and Congressional Representation. Census answers are confidential. In March 2020, every household received a postcard from the U.S Census Bureau with instructions for completing the census in one of three ways: online, telephone, or a mailable form. On average, it only takes six minutes to complete. For more information on the census, visit   2020census.gov.

Economic Impact Payments

The IRS is issuing Economic Impact Payments to every eligible American. The IRS needs your assistance to reach individuals who do not normally file a Tax Return because they do not have enough income that requires them to file. This includes the homeless, unbanked, certain seniors and some limited English-proficient individuals who will need to provide information to the IRS to get their Economic Impact Payment.

If possible, those individuals can use the IRS free online tool to sign up to get an Economic Impact Payment:  www.irs.gov/nonfilereip

**Payments are Automatic for Many Federal Beneficiaries – SSA, SSI, RRB and VA: For those receiving Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Veterans Affairs benefits who didn’t file a tax return in the last two years, no action is needed; they will automatically receive their $1,200 payment.

Union Chapel Food Pantry & Caring and Sharing Ministry:

  • During this pandemic season, requests for baby and children's clothes continue to be on the rise. If you have new or slightly used baby, children and/or teen clothes that can be donated to the general public, please drop them off at the church (located on Winchester Road) between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Friday.  To ensure physical distancing, press the buzzer near the far-left front door to alert the church staff that you are leaving clothes.  Then return to your vehicle.  The clothes will be retrieved by the staff.  Thank you for helping to meet the needs of those who are less fortunate in our community.   Beginning at 8 a.m., prepackaged nonperishable food boxes will be distributed to the general public on Saturday, August 1, 2020; Saturday, November 21, 2020; and Saturday, December 19, 2020, from the Winchester Road location.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...”  Matthew 25:35 NIV
