Community Plate Returns – January-February 2021

The Community Plate program has been an integral way for our congregation to reach out into the community to support organizations that share our principles. During the several months Community Plate has been on hiatus, UUCA has suggested organizations for you to support in the Worship Service link emails.

The time seems right to reconvene the official Community Plate. Our Team has come up with a plan for UUCA to again support specific organizations. During COVID-time, each designated organization will be assigned a two-month period for donations. We will begin with the Mel Hetland Scholarship Fund for January and February. You will be able to donate to the Community Plate recipients through the UUCA website, through text-to-give or by sending a check with “Community Plate” in the memo line. Then, as we have always done, UUCA will send a check for the total amount of our donations to the organization.

Each organization will be asked to submit two videos, one about the organization and one featuring someone who has benefited from its services. They will be shown during our worship service on the first Sunday of the month. You will also be able to click into the videos from our Weekly eNews on Thursdays.

The Community Plate team looks forward to resuming this outreach program with our congregation.
