Even during the pandemic, First UU Berks has demonstrated generosity and kindness in a tangible way! Once a month, we designate a donation to a selected non-profit organization. The selected organizations were nominated by church members and voted on at our congregational meeting.
Jan 2020 Spectrum = $666Feb 2020 Make the Road PA = $568April 2020 FUUBC COVID Fund = $2980May 2020 Olivet Boys and Girls Club = $410June 2020 Family Promise Walk = $2075 raised by Cyndi Dimovitz with a majority from church folks.
On Sunday, September 27, we invited you to respond to the #VoteLove and #DefeatHate call by making a special plate donation to UU The Vote.
The best way is to mail your donation to the church by check with UU The Vote in the memo line. Contributions will fuel organizing efforts that mobilize our communities to create powerful partnerships and bring our values to the public square in the 2020 elections.
In October, we have designated the recipient to be Helping Harvest (formerly Greater Reading Food Bank) in response to the great need for food security of our vulnerable neighbors.
We now invite you to vote on the next three recipients for Nov, Dec, and Jan special plate collections.
