Westwood Support for UUA Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund
Sunday September 10, we will be dedicating the offering (all donations that aren’t marked as ‘Westwood pledge’) to Hurricane Relief.
If you are writing a cheque, please make it out to “Westwood Unitarian” – as we will combine the receipts into one cheque for mailing.
For those of you who prefer e-transfer … please send it to: email@example.com … and email your ‘password’ to that same address.
Please put a “hurricane relief” note on any cheque or e-transfer.
In the week following the service, our office administrator Elaine will forward your donations as well as our message of support.
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has joined with the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) to establish the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund.
Half of all funds raised will go to at-risk populations served by UUSC partners and the other half of the funds will support Unitarian Universalist congregations and members of those congregations most affected by the storm. UUA staff are working closely with leaders in the Association’s Southern Region to learn where the need is greatest and distribute funds efficiently.
UUSC is supporting long-time partner RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services), a Texas-based organization that provides direct legal services and education on the rights of immigrants. In the aftermath of Harvey, it is crucial that immigrant communities—documented and undocumented—know their rights and have access to legal services.
Your donation is much appreciated. Thank you.
