UUSC Hurricane Dorian Crisis Response
 The Denominational Connections Ministry Team has requested that we continue our collection for Hurricane Dorian relief. Please make a generous contribution to help UUSC deliver critically needed support to those in the Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian. Their unique approach to crisis response includes working with local groups to provide relief long after the media's attention has moved on.

Please make checks payable to UUSC with Hurricane Dorian Crisis Response on the memo line. Thank you for your generosity.
