Each year at this time, friends and families of Unitarian Universalist Church West participate in the UU tradition of Guest at Your Table, a human rights program sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC).
Pick up your Guest at Your Table box or donation envelope from the display in the church foyer beginning Sunday, November 4. Boxes and envelopes will be collected during the service on Sunday, December 16.
Participating households put their Guest at Your Table box or envelope in a prominent spot, often the family meal table. Then every time families gather for a meal, they think about the people around the world who need our support and put their spare money in the box or envelope.
The UUSC puts our shared UU principles into action in the United States and around the world. Through a potent combination of advocacy, education, and partnerships with grassroots organizations, UUSC promotes economic rights, advances environmental justice, and preserves the rights of people in times of humanitarian crisis.
And thanks to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock in Manhasset, N.Y., gifts of $125 or more are eligible to be matched, doubling your good works!
Your generosity with the Guest at Your Table is tax deductible! Be sure to turn any cash into a check made out to UUSC and complete the form on your box or envelope. If you would prefer not to bring home a box or envelope, you can support UUSC directly online at www.uusc.org.
