1/2 Plate Donation
Each Sunday, UUC donates 1/2 the collection plate to local charities and UU-affiliated organizations. This week’s recipient is the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee’s (UUSC) Campaign to Support Migrant Families. Our contribution will help UUSC work to defend the rights of migrants seeking asylum from horrible violence in Central America by working with organizations on the ground to welcome them, help them to know and defend their rights, and ensure their safety.
Special Screening of “I Am Maris” at the Lyric Theatre
UUC’s Mental Health Justice Ministry, NAMI NRV and the National Bank of BBurg are sponsoring this FREE showing of “I Am Maris” on Saturday, March 23 at 2 PM at the Lyric Theatre in Blacksburg. This film will resonate with anyone who has contended with anxiety, depression and/or an eating disorder. “I Am Maris” tells not only the story of the impact of mental illness and recovery on the survivor, but also the impact on her family, friends, and community. A Mental Health Panel will answer questions following the movie.
