GIVING AWAY THE PLATE

 

GIVING AWAY THE PLATE

Two weekends each month plate collections from our services are given outside of our walls to small local organizations or to denominational activities.

Plate Selection Process: Plate collections from First Unitarian are given to local non-profit organizations (501C3), line items in the church budget that are connected to Social Justice Ministry (SJM) or to denominational activities.

How to Submit a Plate Collection Request Form: Members and Friends of First Unitarian Church are invited to submit a completed request form. Ministerial staff and Plate Committee members may also submit nominations for a plate collection. Information needed includes:

  • Name and contact information of organization
  • Name and contact information of member/friend suggesting the offering
  • Organization mission and description of services
  • Purpose of offering
  • Committee will verify frequency of plate collection (specifically within last 12 months)
  • Fiduciary information is required

This team is led by Elaine Richane. Feel free to contact her directly for more information.
