uuscOur Social Concerns / Social Justice Committee begins its 2017 “CHANGE the World” project with its first month-long collection to benefit Guest at Your Table, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee’s annual program to raise awareness and support for their work in advancing human rights. This year’s program theme is Defying Hate. During January, our children will collect your change in their small donation boxes -- or you can leave your spare change in our CHANGE jar in the church foyer.
