Special Collection News

The Special Collection Committee sent a check for $1035 to Don’t Miss A Beat!   It was an inspirational performance by the All Star singers! It was gratifying to hear the words of Ulysses Owens Jr. about the effort he and his family are making to bring excellence through music to these children.  Thank you for your generosity towards this outstanding organization.

Make Us Smile

Do you shop on Amazon? Sign up on Amazon Smile to have a small portion of your payment allocated to UUCJ!  It’s easy and seamless.  Go to www.smile.amazon.com to register and name UUCJ as your recipient non-profit. Then, when you want to purchase an item on Amazon, sign on at www.smile.amazon.com.  The site is identical (including Prime), the process is automatic, and the prices are the same as the regular Amazon site.  And UUCJ gets a few cents for every purchase.  Since we registered as a recipient non-profit about a year ago, UUCJ has received $89.  We know many of us use Amazon — if all of us signed up for Amazon Smile, we could make some serious cash!
