Did you know that UU congregations directly fund the work of other community organizations? Every week at the Sunday service an offering is accepted with the proceeds being distributed in various ways. One of those ways is to go directly to community organizations who have demonstrated a high degree of legitimacy and effectiveness. This article is the first in a series sharing the stories of these community partners. On 1/28/18 UUFSD is supporting Public Watchdogs with it's Generosity Sunday. From the organizer: "Public Watchdogs is a California nonprofit. We are working to prevent the burial of deadly radioactive nuclear waste at San Onofre State Beach Park. We are the only organization that has an active lawsuit to stop the burial on behalf of the Public. Your tax-deductible donation provides the support we need to pay legal expenses, attend meetings, monitor government agencies, conduct research, and provide public outreach. It also funds travel, equipment costs, and staff time to protect your interests, and to monitor and publicly expose malfeasance and corruption. You can learn more about us at www.publicwatchdogs.org." Please join us any Sunday and check the order of service to see if your donation is going to one of these worthy groups. The good we do is amplified by every donation and reaches far wider than just our UU congregations!
