Thanks again for your contributions — you exceeded 100 pounds (105) for the second time in November! Donations this month have been 56, 110, 77, and 105. Thanks for the uptick in contributions as Arlington Community Services continues to feed less fortunate in Arlington Community. Our YTD total is 2,784 pounds that includes Sunday and Arlington Community Garden donations.
Our campaign is running well for 2019. The $2,015 we collected last year for global human rights may be hard to beat, but we’ll continue filling those coin boxes, buying chocolates, and writing checks for UUSC until the end of December. Many thanks for your support!

Thanks for contributing $832 to the Special Collection for Bozod Unitarian Church on Sunday. A contribution of $100 was turned into the office, bringing the total to $932. Sometimes additional donations will trickle in after the collection. We are confident that we will exceed the $1,000 goal. If you would like to put us over the top or even increase the total we are sending to Bozod, feel free to contribute online or bring check to UUCJ next Sunday. Please annotate the memo line of the check: “Special Collection Bozod.” Thanks again for being generous partners to the Bozod Unitarian Church.
Coin boxes keep getting filled up until you bring them back during the Christmas holidays, but your donation checks will be accepted any time up until the New Year. Please remember to write checks to UUCJ, with “UUSC” on the memo line. Consider this your small way to help with the immigrant crisis on our southern border. The UUSC supports RAICES, an important group that provides legal assistance to refugee children and their families.
UUCJ has had a long time relationship with the Unitarian church of Bozud, Romania. Several of our members have visited. Last year the minister and his wife spent a wonderful week here in Jacksonville. As part of this special relationship, we conduct an annual special collection. Carlos Fraticelli, chairperson of the Partner church committee (who has been to Bozud) will further explain the value of our contribution to this congregation in Romania.
Florie and Joe Adiutori will be the hosts once more at their residence 2:30-5:00 p.m. All are welcome. They have been having this annual holiday open house for 30 years, and its become a UU tradition for a lot of UU’s stop by.
