UUWaco participates in many local service projects. Each year our congregation nominates and votes for our Share-the-Plate Partners for the next year. Here are our 2020 Share-the-Plate Partners!

Share-the-Plate: We donate half of our unpledged donations to our Share-the-Plate partner each month. Located in Waco, our most frequent Share-the-Plate partners include: Animal Birth Control Clinic, Family Abuse Center, Fuzzy Friends Rescue, Guitars for Vets, Humane Society of Central Texas, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, Talitha Koum Institute, Caritas, and more. The following are some of our favorites.

Animal Birth Control Clinic: UUWaco regularly volunteers at the Waco ABC Clinic. We do this so that employees can devote all their time to animals.

Cereal Sunday: The first Sunday of each month we bring boxes of cereal to Sunday service. We donate that cereal to Caritas.

Souper Bowl Sunday: Each year for the Super Bowl, we have a potluck party after Sunday service to raise money for Caritas.

Talitha Koum: Each Christmas we participate in the Angel Tree Program with Talitha Koum so that children will have presents.

Our December Share the Plate donation of almost $350 was delivered to Talitha Koum on Tuesday. Office manager Marjorie Dawson accepted the check.

UUWaco has been delivering Christmas gifts to the children of TK Nurture Center since its inception, providing happy holidays for approximately 500 children in those years.
