Giving Beyond Our Walls

Since 2008, by sharing 50% of our non-pledge plate offerings through this initiative, and by following up with action, we have contributed our time and treasure with other worthy organizations and causes, putting our 7 principles into action and working on behalf of the dignity of all people.

Determination of the GBOW Recipients is done monthly at Board Meetings based on our Soul Matters theme for the month, and also reflects one of our 7 UUA Principles.

October GBOW: More Than Words

More Than Words is a job training program and bookstore, empowering youth to learn how to run a business and change their lives. They work with the most vulnerable young adults in Greater Boston: those who are in the foster care system, court-involved, homeless, or out of school. At More Than Words, youth earn a paying job, learning job skills while receiving focused support.

We hope to have a More Than Words table at our Alternative Fair in December!
