Guest at Your Table

The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), dedicated to advancing justice and human rights for 75 years, is having its traditional fundraiser (Guest at Your Table), beginning at Thanksgiving, and continuing until Martin Luther King Day in mid January. If you want to make a donation for the 2015 tax year, please get a check to Lois Whealey, UUSC Local Representative, by December 29, since she will be sending money postmarked before the year’s end.

A donation of $40 makes you a member of UUSC; a donation of $125 will be matched by the Shelter Rock Congregation in Manhasset, NY. Contributions in any amount are, of course, gratefully received. Checks made out to UUSC may be sent directly to: UUSC, PO Box 808, Newark NJ 07101-0808, or get your donation to Lois W.

UUSC is celebrating the 75 years since Martha Sharp of the Unitarian Service Committee sailed from Lisbon with 29 refugee children, many of them Jewish, in December 1940. The faces of two of those refugees, now old folks, are featured on this year’s Guest at Your Table money collecting box.


Winter Breakaway Survey

The Winter Breakaway team wishes to thank the UUFA community for a successful 2015 Winter Breakaway and Silent Auction at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Athens. Over $2000 was raised for the UUFA Endowment fund.

In order to help us make next year’s event even better, the we are asking those who attended to please fill out this quick, completely anonymous survey on Survey Monkey: If you have any issues with the survey, please feel free to come on Sunday to find a member of the Breakaway Team and we can help you complete the survey after service.

Thanks again and we hope that you had as much fun as we did!
