October Dedicated Offerings for Maui Strong
The Dedicated Offering Committee (DOC) selects non-profit organizations that our UU Society will support with donations from our Sunday collections September – June. We split our collections 50/50 with them. In turn, our UU Society is enriched by learning about organizations we did not know about that are helping enrich our world. The DOC solicits members for names of specific organizations and asks that they complete a specific DO form, which is available in the UUSA office or on-line at https://forms.gle/hypyMGzMJHgeAVf26.
The Maui Strong fund supports victims of the Hawaii wildfires which devastated Lahaina in western Maui. It is recommended by the UUA and a UU minister living in Honolulu. The blaze killed at least 115 people, with many still missing, and destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses. It was the fifth deadliest fire in US history and the worst in this century.
