Guest at Your Table
A Unitarian Universalist Holiday Tradition
Welcome a Guest at Your Table this holiday season by collecting for the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, a humanitarian organization that has been working for human rights and equality for over 75 years.
Simply place the box on your table, counter, or other central location during the holiday season and challenge your family to contribute regularly. Here are a few ideas:
- Add spare change at each meal during the month of December; make a deadline for your family and then have a special meal or celebration to count, and celebrate, how much you collected.
- Have a special family day to talk about what it means to support organizations like UUSC- challenge each family member to make a pledge to raise a certain amount to money for the Guest at Your Table program.
- Host a gathering for friends and extended family- tell them about the UUSC Guest at Your Table program, and ask your guests to bring a donation.
- Invite children to complete special chores or acts of kindness to earn money for this cause.
This UU holiday tradition is a great way to help remind our children that when we work together, we can make great things happen. Pick up your box on Sunday morning, watch a video and learn more about the partners that we are supporting on the UUSC website at www.uusc.org.
Please remember to return your boxes to WBUUC on or before December 24th; you can help us process this collection by writing a check for the amount your family collects. Checks can be made out to WBUUC, with Guest at Your Table in the memo line. All contributions of $125 or more collected by December 24th are matched by a foundation, so your donation will be doubled.
Thank you for inviting a Guest to your holiday table!
