We are selling shirts, mugs, and magnets in the social hall until the January 18th. So, be sure to stop by and stock up on all your UUCJ goods!
GUEST at YOUR TABLE money and boxes can still be dropped off on Dec. 25th and Jan. 1st. We know how busy the season is, and will be happy to take your donations for the global efforts of our UUSC. Thank you to all who have given toward this great organization.
GUEST AT YOUR TABLE campaign ends Sunday, December 18th. Please turn in your coin boxes and envelopes for UUSC.

If you are 70 1/2 or older, making an IRA Charitable Rollover gift is a great way for you to support UUCJ.
- An IRA Charitable Rollover gift can be used to meet all or part of an IRA Required Minimum
- You pay no income tax on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax
deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your taxes.
- The IRA rollover allows donors who are 70½ or older to transfer up to $100,000 directly from
their IRA to charity each year.
Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA; specify that you want to
make an IRA Charitable Rollover.
The 1st Annual Mavis Greene award goes to Mary Blajian and Gene Cronk for being the first to turn in their UUSC membership. See Cyd for your chocolate prize! If a $40 membership is beyond your budget, please take home a coin box and collect what you can for our global efforts by Dec. 18th. If using a check, write it to UUCJ, with UUSC on the memo line.
The special collection will benefit Rethreaded: a Jacksonville non-profit assisting woman to escape the sex trade through advocacy and training. Kristen Keen, executive director will explain the mission of ReThreaded and sell some of their lovely products. The holidays are right around the corner! Make your checks payable to UUCJ with ReThreaded in the memo line.
