November’s “Share the Plate” recipient:


Our mission is to raise awareness about the prevalence of hunger in our community, and to begin fundraising in order to combat local poverty in the most effective and sustainable way possible.


MqtUU made the 2014 Honor Roll, which celebrates the 641 member congregations of the UUA who contributed the full requested amount via the Annual Program Fund or the GIFT program last year!
“Thank you for your excellent support! Congregation’s contributions to the UUA via APF and GIFT are the largest source of income for our Association, and your generosity allows us all to do so much good.”
In Faith,
Norrie Gall, Annual Program Fund Assistant
Vail Weller, Congregational Giving Director
