The annual pledge drive is when we come together to celebrate and renew our financial commitments to support the mission and work of WUUC. This year’s theme is about building connections and strengthening the fabric of our community. We are the foundation at the center of WUUC, interweaving many facets to create our future. Together we are WUUC.
Please join us on Sunday, Feb. 24, for our pledge drive kickoff and community potluck.
