Sharing Our Riches

Our September and October recipient for “Sharing Our Riches” will be the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund. Half of all funds raised will go to at-risk populations served by UUSC partners and the other half of the funds will support Unitarian Universalist congregations and members of those congregations most affected by the storm. Those funds will be administered by a group of leaders in the UUA’s Southern Region, which includes the states across the southeast from Texas to South Carolina, and from most of Virginia to Florida. Using their eye-to-eye partnership model, UUSC will work with and support local grassroots community partners on the ground in Texas serving at-risk populations who may not be able to access relief services and who are traditionally left out of mainstream response efforts. UUSC and their partners will work to bolster locally led relief efforts that are serving immigrant families, in particular young mothers and their children. UUSC will continue to get updates and work with partners to ensure their needs are met. For more information on the fund, go to Please give as generously as you are able; your donation to this fund is much appreciated. If you desire that your entire contribution (rather than a portion), go to this cause, simply write a check payable to “UUA” and write “Harvey Recovery Fund” in the memo line.
