As the current Treasurer of the Board, I wanted to say thank you all so much for your generosity on Giving Tuesday. We hit our goal and then some.
What comes to mind is the times back in the 80’s when I watched A-Team with my grandma and heard John ‘Hannibal’ Smith say, “I love it when a plan comes together.” However, my saying is, “I love it when our community comes together.”
Much Love, Michelle
This year, your generous donations to Unity Center for Spiritual Growth on Giving Tuesday will fund our winter utilities. To keep our building a warm, bright, and cozy space for our community to gather for Sunday Services and other events, we need to cover the rising cost of heat and electricity. During the winter months, we have additional maintenance costs for snow storms such as snow plowing, shoveling, salting the walkways, and power outages.
Your Giving Tuesday gift this year will go directly toward these winter expenses so that we can have a safe and warm winter together. Even a donation as small as $25 would significantly help us to reach our goal of $10,000. Any amount you are able to give will support us and we are so grateful! If you’d like to give $50, $75, $100, or more . . . we have our eye on purchasing a snow and ice shield for our doorway to make entering and exiting the building even safer during the iciest of days.
We have quite a few winter costs, and because of inflation, things cost even more than in the past. We get an average of six big snowstorms per winter, and each of them costs $275 to plow the parking lot!
Here are a few SUGGESTED DONATIONS and which winter utilities they will cover:
$25 – Pays for 1 week of phone!
$50 – Pays for 1 week of electricity!
$75 – Pays for 3 weeks of internet!
$100 – Pays for 1 week of heat!
$275 – Pays for 1 snowstorm!
Giving Tuesday is officially on November 29, but we will gladly receive your gifts now.

Thank you for being a light! We are so grateful for you.
Thank you for being a part of Unity! Your generosity makes all that we do possible. In giving we receive, and in receiving we give!
