Charitable Giving for April 2013
“We do not gather our gifts only for ourselves but to share with the larger community.”
Continuing our practice of sharing our gifts with the community beyond our walls, for the month of May the recipients of 50% of our Sunday plate collections not otherwise designated will be split between Interval House East and Covenant to Care – East of the River.
For more than 25 years Interval House has been the region’s primary provider of services to victims of domestic violence. The Manchester office opened in 1994 to serve east of the river towns.
Interval House East offers counseling, advocacy, and basic support to clients from Manchester, Vernon, East Hartford and other nearby towns.
We have participated in the Covenant to Care program for many years and a portion of this month’s collection will support the special emergency needs of this program, assisting families, children, teens, and young adults.
Checks made out to Unitarian Universalist Society: East will be treated as follows:
If the memo line:
- is blank or “pledge” is written, all will go toward our pledge.
- has “COM” or the name of the charity is on the memo line, all will go the charity.
- has “1/2 pledge, 1/2 COM,” it will be divided equally.
The committee overseeing our community outreach efforts welcomes your comments and suggestions.
