Split-the-Plate Partner Program
UUCT provides social action assistance to a number of local not-for-profit social service organizations through our Split-the-Plate Partners program. Each month, our UUCT congregation donates one-half of the non-pledge and not otherwise designated proceeds from our Sunday morning offerings to a different organization that would not otherwise be eligible for funding through mainstream, traditional sources. The current organizations receiving our donations are as follows:
- Friends of Hurricane Creek
- East Tuscaloosa Community Soup Bowl
- Hospice of West Alabama
- Temporary Emergency Services, Inc.
- Turning Point
- Tuscaloosa Community Soup Bowl
- Druid City Garden Project
- Caring Days
- West Alabama AIDS Outreach
- Druid City Pride
- Move to Amend-Tuscaloosa
- Alabama SPCA
- West Alabama Food Bank
UUCT members also donate non-perishable food to the local food pantry at Grace Presbyterian Church throughout the year. Donated books are collected in October for Books to Prisons.
