Dedicated Offerings recognize and financially support worthy organizations engaged in projects that reflect our Unitarian-Universalist principles. Our March 15 offering recipient will be The Gandara Center.

Established in 1977 as a community-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to provide outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment to Springfield’s large, underserved Hispanic community, Gandara has become an agency with a mission to promote the wellbeing of Hispanic, African-American, and other culturally diverse populations through innovative, culturally competent health, prevention, and education services.

Gandara serves people in need both locally and internationally.  In January, Gandara Center staff travelled to Puerto Rico to deliver aid to families in remote mountain communities affected by the recent earthquakes on the island.

Please open your hearts and give generously to this most worthy recipient.
