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.

Some groups have included UU Service Committee, Inland Valley Hope Partners, Prison Library Project, NAMI & others. MVUUC gives the entire collection which has ranged from $250 to $600 over the last year, to the selected organization.Dollar Bill
