About Third Sunday Collections
Our monthly ‘Third Sunday’ collection is an opportunity to contribute to a variety of local, national, and international causes that put the UU Principles into action. The collection happens on the third Sunday of each month, benefiting local, regional, or national not-for-profit organizations dedicated to an aspect of social justice.
