Easter Dedicated Plate Collection
As we have done for many years, our Easter Sunday, April 1, plate collection will go to UCEF, the United Churches Emergency Fund, which provides emergency aid for rent and utility assistance to individuals and families in UUC’s neighborhood. The need to prevent people from becoming homeless in the first place is so important right now with the steep increases in rent in our area. UCEF is able to match its amount 2 to 4 times with other funding sources to provide more substantial assistance. Money given with dignity, a compassionate ear and unwavering support help clients get back on their feet.
UCEF has a variety of volunteer opportunities to do your part in preventing homelessness, including during their hours of service on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. For more information call (206) 524-7885 or visit http://www.uchurchesemergencyfund.org.
