We collect donations for the Infant Pantry on the first Sunday of each month. Though the Pantry is currently closed, you can make an online donation on our website. You can also make a check out to UUFCM with memo “Infant Pantry,” and send to UUFCM Treasurer, P.O. Box 41, Mt. Pleasant, MI, 48804-0041. Questions? Contact Tom Moffit (989-772-1602; email@example.com).
At the last minute, we have been asked to provide meals for the homeless at the Free Methodist Church from Sunday, February 28, through Saturday, March 6. We need people to provide main dishes, side dishes, beverages, and desserts. If you are interested and willing to help – and for more information – please contact Joyce Henricks.
On Sunday a special plate collection will be taken to support the work of MUUSJN, the Michigan Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Network. MUUSJN is a very active state-wide network of the 26 Unitarian Universalist congregations and allies in Michigan who work together for progressive change. Its mission is to foster the worth and dignity of people by promoting social justice and community service. You can donate online to the Social Justice Special Plate Collections Fund at our website or checks can be sent to our treasurer made out to UUFCM with MUUSJN in the memo.
We are also very much encouraging individual people to become a members of MUUSJN. The work of the MUUSJN director and the three project organizers we employ has led to many accomplishments each year that support our UU values. Thus, when you become a member, you spread your small donation well beyond our UUFCM walls.
The January special collection on Sunday, January 17 is for the Isabella County Restoration House, the agency providing temporary shelter for their guests - the homeless population in Isabella County. This year, because of the COVID pandemic, ICRH has, in essence, been serving the homeless 24/7, with the help of a few volunteer churches. You can donate online to this fund at our website or checks can be sent to our treasurer made out to UUFCM with “ICRH” indicated in the memo line.
