Our October Dedicated Offering is for Doctors without Borders
Doctors Without Borders (Medecins San Frontieres, MSF), is a very large international medical organization which provides care to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect or catastrophe. Established in 1971, it has provided lifesaving help to hundreds of thousand of people in 70 countries.
This year, each month will be devoted to a new Dedicated Offering (DO) recipient whose representative will speak on the first Sunday. We will no longer hold a separate offering for the DO recipient but will split Sunday’s offering plate 50/50 with the recipient organization. This move symbolizes the solidarity we feel with the organizations we choose to support, and it gives us all more opportunities to contribute. As always, please specify whether the funds you send to the office or by PayPal are for the Plate, your pledge, or some other purpose.
Donations can be made to the UUSA and sent by check to P.O. Box 502, Amherst, MA 01004-0502 or on our website: https://www.uusocietyamherst.org/connection/donate.
