The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC) is celebrating its 25th anniversary by giving back to Door County through a matching-donation campaign to support local nonprofits as they address critical needs.
The UUFDC’s 25th Anniversary Community-Support Initiative will direct the combined Sunday collections designated for “community support” during each fiscal quarter of the anniversary year to benefit an organization identified by the fellowship’s Social Justice Committee for its service in the child care, food insecurity, housing or mental health area. The UUFDC will match designated Sunday collections, up to $2,500 per quarter, and it has a goal of making $25,000 in combined contributions during the anniversary year.
The Boys and Girls Club of Door County will be the first beneficiary.
“The Boys and Girls Club of Door County is doing an excellent job at trying to address the vulnerability of Door County’s children and youth by providing stimulating activities, cultural exposures, adult supervision, role modeling and more,” said Henk Wolst, UUFDC president.
Giving back is a UUFDC tradition, with collections from each third Sunday going to nonprofit organizations that address child care, housing, racial justice, disaster relief, food insecurity and more.
