We’re looking for a few new volunteers for what is arguably the most convenient, lowest-maintenance committee at UUCM—Sharing Our Riches. Each month the congregation of UUCM donates 20% of the weekly collection to a charitable organization which aligns with our UU values. This is the perfect way to give a little of your time on your own terms, because we only “meet” via phone or email when needed and the time commitment is quite small. Email Patrick Preblick if you’re interested in learning more–firstname.lastname@example.org.
And…we always welcome suggestions from UUCM members of organizations you’d like considered. We try to cast a wide net of organizations we donate to, but request that they have high rating on Charity Navigator or equivalent transparency on their financials. Some of the themes we try to cover throughout the year include: racial justice, mass incarceration, environmental and animal welfare issues, poverty, women’s reproductive health, immigrants’ rights, children’s issues/adoption, the arts and much more. Do you have a great idea? Email Patrick Preblick email@example.com and she’ll let you know next steps!
