Social Action Team February report

The Faith-to-Action recipient for February is the Minority Men’s Network. The network’s mission is, “To utilize the power of committed men to improve the lives of ethnic minorities through leadership and service.” You will hear more about their goals, activities and what they hope to achieve at the services on Feb. 4 and 18.

Recent Faith-To-Action collection results:

  • September: $537 for The Center Project
  • October: $736 for Heart of Missouri CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates)
  • November: $1,454 for the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund. Combined with the Chili Fund-Raiser, that makes a total of $5,174 for PCRF.
  • December: $888 for First Chance for Children

As a reminder, we have two Sundays per month when all proceeds from the Sunday service collection plates are donated to the designated Faith-to-Action recipient for the month. You may also donate on the UUCC website any time during the month for the designated FTA recipient.

We typically get heart-felt letters of thanks from the organizations we donate to. To view these letters check the bulletin board across from staff mailboxes. Our generosity is appreciated!

UUCC member Janice Mericle is a Family Resource Specialist with First Chance for Children and introduced the December FTA collection one Sunday. She is thrilled that the collection went so well, and told us that this makes a big difference to the organization. So, from Janice to all of us — thank you!
