At UUC, we generally dedicate the plate collection on one Sunday of each month to a social justice cause or organization.
In the six years since the Dedicated Plate Collection program began, our congregation has contributed over $160,000, in 40 separate plate collections, benefiting 22 different organizations.
Proposals for dedicated plate collections are welcome from any chartered group or committee at UUC, as well as church school classes.
