Focus Collection for December: Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC)
SWUU will continue its support to The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
(UUSC). The program is also known as Guest at Your Table. Families are encouraged to
have a giving box set up during dinner, and families can make daily donations while sharing a
meal together. UUSC works in over 20 countries with over 60 Grassroots partners. Each year
a different theme is the focus. The 2019-2020 theme is Women Leaders, Strong
Communities. and the money will be used in supporting women in leadership
roles. Contributions of $125 or more will be matched by the UU Congregation at Shelter
Rock in Manhasset, NY. Donations of $40 or more will earn you a UUSC
membership. Checks can be made out to SWUU or UUSC. All the checks will be mailed
together in January. This is our opportunity to support the UUSC in their efforts to support
causes over the world. Thank you for your generosity.
