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.

December GBOW: The Melrose Emergency Fund

The Melrose Emergency Fund was originally established in 1996, after 25 families were displaced by two fires. Since that time, the fund has accepted and disbursed hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations to Melrose families, with a focus on basic needs such as food, rent, and utilities.To find out more information about this important program visit the website.
