Share the Plate

IMG_4192SPECIAL SUNDAY COLLECTIONS at Monte Vista Unitarian Universalist Congregation MVUUC continues to be a generous congregation. We do not gather all your gifts for ourselves, but for the world. Toward that end, the Social Justice Coordinating Committee (SJCC) selects several worthy causes each year for our special SHARE THE PLATE collection now held on the second Sunday of each month.  MVUUC gives the entire collection to the selected organization.

Do you have a suggestion for MVUUC’s monthly Share the Plate collection recipient?

The February Share the Plate offering for Sunday, February 10, 2019 will be received for Citizens’ Climate Lobby. This is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. They have advocated for a Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal for nearly a decade and members of the U.S. Congress have introduced the bipartisan Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, which embodies the fee-and-dividend approach CCL supports. Several MVUUC members are active in this worthy organization. Please support Citizens’ Climate Lobby by contributing to the February 10th offering. Remember to makes checks out to MVUUC, with “Citizens’ Climate Education” in the memo line.

If you have a suggestion of a 501(c)(3) organization that the SJCC ought to consider for our SHARE THE PLATE collection, kindly submit your request in writing to any member of the SJCC (Margaret Davis, Teresia Santee, Catherine Rowlee, Julie Steinbach, Harry Ragland, Jeanine Little)

Please include:

  1. Name, Address, Contact information of the organization
  2. Your affiliation and history with the organization
  3. Why we should consider this organization? (i.e., how does it reflect our UU values?)
  4. How would funds we donate be used?
  5. How others may become involved in the organization, if they so choose?

Thank You.
