  Focus Collection for December: Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
Our December Focus Collection will go to The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
(UUSC). This has been the end of the year focus since the church’s inception. Many of us
fondly remember it as “Guest At Your Table.” UUSC aims to challenge injustice and advance
human rights. It isn’t just a relief agency; the UUSC works anywhere rights are threatened by
natural disasters, armed conflict, genocide, forced migration and systematic injustice. They
create grassroots collaborations and have been at it since WWII. This year the money will be
used to support “Justice Across Borders.” Donations of $40 or more earn you a UUSC
membership. Contributions of $125 or more are eligible to be matched by the UU Congregation
at Shelter Rock in Manhasset, NY. You may make your checks out directly to UUSC or to
SWUU. The checks will be mailed together. Please designate them as Focus Collection. Please
join the UUSC in their work to support human rights and social justice. Thank you for your
