Social Generosity Offering: May 2020

The May UUCM Social Generosity Offering will go to The Link.

The Link  supports nearly 3,000 youth and young families each year, offering programming in three areas:

  • Housing & Supportive Services:  Twelve housing programs that provide safe and stable housing and offer supportive services that are grounded in trauma informed care, housing first and positive youth development. Programs serve youth, young families and youth who self-identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

  • Juvenile Justice: Positive community-based alternative programs for youth in the juvenile justice system in Hennepin County. They work to find positive solutions to prevent the youth from dropping out of school and engaging in further criminal activity.

  • Safe Harbor: Provide shelter and supportive services for sexually exploited youth, including trauma informed care, harm reduction, positive youth development, victim-survivor-leader model and culturally inclusive services.

Social Generosity Offering: April 2020

April’s offering will support the Minister’s Discretionary Fund at UUCM. The Minister’s Discretionary Fund is a fund that the ministers of the church use to support members of our community who encounter financial hardship and need assistance. Sometimes a little assistance with a bill or car repair can go a long way. If you’re feeling stressed about finances, you are encouraged to reach out to the ministers to see if and how they can help. If in doubt, give them a call. True community is about giving when we can, and also getting help when we need it. Your faith community is here for you.

Social Generosity Offering: March 2020

Our MARCH Social Generosity Offering will go to the MN Food Share and IOCP’s Prevent Hunger March CampaignNearly half of those who come to Interfaith Outreach for the first time need food. With the help of this generous community, IOCP distributed 1 million pounds of food and household essentials last year. Interfaith Outreach also works holistically to prevent future hunger through employment and family support services.

3/24/20 Update: The church members’ donations of more than 100 pounds of food were taken to their food shelf this week and they were very grateful. You may continue to donate financially to their good work by clicking here. Your donation will be compounded nine-fold.
