Our UU friends and neighbors in Florida and the Caribbean—including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands—have experienced extraordinary devastation following Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Our March Share the Plate Partner has been selected and we invite you to contribute to the UUA Disaster Relief Fund so the UUA can provide financial assistance to UU congregations impacted by these and other natural disasters. In addition to facilitating their own disaster recovery, congregations receiving disaster relief funds will have discretion to provide financial assistance to their members, as well as to support local partner organizations serving the community at large.
Puerto Rico’s situation is especially severe. We know that long after the initial clean-up, real recovery can take months or years.
Your donations will allow the UUA to respond flexibly to this tragedy and to new situations as they arise. Please give generously at our services on 3/11 to help our brothers and sisters in need. All undesignated collection contributions will be split 50/50 with TPUUF and the Disaster Relief Fund.
