The perfect marriage of work and support

There are always two sides to every story.

Side 1:

Sharing the basket on Sundays and on-line made sure that there was ample money to fund the New Years PORT night.

Side 2:

Volunteers made sure that more than 60 folks had a warm place to go and hot food to eat on New Year’s Eve. And smiling faces with a warm breakfast New Year’s morning to greet them at the start of 2018.

Today’s the day!

In about eighteen hours we say goodbye to 2017

BUT…

In about nine hours, volunteers from the UUFP will be showing up to spend the night at PORT. This is the most expensive activity of Social Justice we have and it deserves your consideration this morning when you are handed the basket. Simply mark your check for PORT to help maintain your support for your friends who will be there tonight. (Or do it now:)

2018 promises to be a bigger ride on the roller coaster!

Tomorrow we say goodbye to 2017 with all its stomach churning ups and downs.

We talk about putting a few dollars in the basket every Sunday but this is your chance to take advantage of a tax deduction for this year. Most of us have our favorites and this is your chance to do even more.

Go ahead! Make your choices!

It seemed a little iffy last January

2017

It seemed a little iffy last January to a lot of people and it hasn’t been without its ups and downs. But, through it all, the UU’s of the Peninsula have been working.

Right out of the gate, the Fellowship sent two busloads of members to Washington for the Women’s march last January.

In February, we delivered 153 pounds of food to the local  that began a relationship that still continues today.Let kids be kids

 

 

The month of March was a memorable time when we hung our Black Lives Matter banner.

By July we were collecting for Undie Sunday.Undee-Sunday-kid

And in September we were back on the bus for the Racial Justice March in Washington.

On the heels of the Racial Justice March was the Annual Crop Walk in October.

Ending the year, we participated in Giving Tuesday with a collection of diapers for families who don’t have the funds for them.

 

And, during all of 2017, we contributed thousands of dollars to Share the Basket!

But there’s so much more to do in 2018 and we need your impact gift NOW!

There’s a lot more to do

Planned Parenthood clinics are frequently the target of folks who want them closed. But, the new tax plan has also been used to do away with the individual mandate in Obamacare which will create even higher prices for those who need health insurance.

This, in turn, will put more pressure on Planned Parenthood clinics to provide free or low cost services to men and women. And, since the Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP) has not been renewed, you can expect to see more of them at the clinics, too.

Your gift to the Share the Basket will be split with Planned Parenthood this Sunday and is more important than ever! And, as always, you can do it on-line using your checking account or credit card.

This is the most important document you have

Your will is the document that dictates your final wishes and gives you total control to make a directed impact.

Leaving a gift in your will for the Fellowship is a great way to make a long lasting contribution. The UUFP endowment is a funding vehicle for special projects outside the budget.

Contact the trustees (Judy, Roy and Mason) for more information.

Handy dates for procrastinators!

DEX_2017calednar_keydates_1500x300_N2Counting on Amazon for last minute shopping and supporting the Fellowship?

Here’s what you need to know:

Monday, December 18 is the last day for standard shipping.

Friday, December 22 is the last day for two-day shipping.

To Face the Future Head-on

Legacy-Society-gift-christm

No one knows what tomorrow will bring and we need to be prepared.

The UUFP endowment is a funding vehicle for special projects outside the budget. But, the principle is never spent! By using part of the interest to fund programs, the endowment will always be safe.

Just click here and fill out the information along with your gift and we’ll do the rest.

We are seeds of the future, for those who succeed us. We dream and envision and set things in motion.
