One Sunday every month (except for June, July, and August), we have traditionally scheduled a Dedicated Offering to recognize and financially support worthy organizations engaged in projects that reflect our guiding Unitarian-Universalist principles. Due to our Zoom-only services and the result of lower offerings, we are holding just one DO every few months rather than every month

The February-April Dedicated Offering will be for the Amherst Survival Center. According to their website, as unemployment reaches record highs, the demand for the Survival Center’s services has and will continue to increase. As we know, the pandemic and its economic fallout are far from over. Feeding America estimates that food insecurity in Western MA will grow by 55% this year, meaning that one in seven of our neighbors will not have access to the food they need.

Please donate to support the Survival Center’s response to COVID-19. Financial contributions give the Survival Center the flexibility to respond as needs change. The Center can buy canned goods, extra milk, or a specific size of diapers as needed. Please give generously. Thank you so much for sharing what you can.
