Guest at Your Table, the major fundraising effort of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), was introduced at the February 24th Sunday service. If you were unable to attend, and did not get a Guest box or envelope, please pick one up at the Fellowship so that you can participate in this program. The UUSC supports projects that promote civil liberties, advance economic and environmental justice, and provide humanitarian aid in times of crisis.
Each family is invited to bring home a Guest Box to place on their dining table. With each meal, place money (real or virtual) in the box that would be spent to feed a guest. With a gift of $40, or $75 for a couple, you become a member of UUSC. Reduced rates are available for students and seniors. Gifts of $100 or more will be matched through a matching grant that has been made possible through the generosity of the UU Congregation at Shelter Rock in Manhasset, NY.
More information about Guest at Your Table and the works of the UUSC is available on the UUSC website, http://www.uusc.org/guest.
Guest boxes or envelopes will be collected on Sundays in March. The final collection of Guest boxes or envelopes will be on Sunday, March 24th.
Donations in the form of a check are preferred, and checks should be made to UUSC, not to the Fellowship. I will then forward your donations to the UUSC so that they can continue their work around the globe.
Thank you for your support – Pat Berthold
