In October our Special Collection sponsored by Advocates for Social Justice (ASJ) will replenish WUUC’s Black Student and Families Fund (BSAFF). This money, along with WUUC volunteers, assists families of students (especially those living at Greenleaf, a subsidized housing community) with a variety of needs – from essentials like education fees and supplies, food, monthly bills, and support for future dreams including college and career development. Your contributions will fund programs and services with the goal of providing a safe environment for students to explore and express their identity as they navigate the racial constructs of their world. Most recently the BSAFF program has helped with education fees, technology for a new college student, moving appliances, and supporting Root of Our Youth events.
The ASJ Committee thanks WUUC members and friends for their generous support of our monthly special collections, which take place during services on the third Sunday of every month. Instructions for giving are posted during the service, and you can also donate anytime the following week at https://onrealm.org/wuuc/-/give/now, or by sending a check to WUUC at P.O. Box 111, Woodinville, WA 98072. Please make checks out to WUUC and write “ASJ Special Collection” in the notes.
