Relief Fund Established for Knoxville UUs

July 29, 2008

If you are so inclined, you may make an online donation at http://www.uua.org/giving/donatenow/117168.shtml

The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) in collaboration with the Thomas Jefferson District has established the Knoxville Relief Fund to bring ministry, spiritual care, and practical financial assistance to those affected by the tragedy in Knoxville, Tennessee. Your gifts will assist the Tennessee Valley UU Church and the Westside Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and their members, and will show them that they are not alone during this time of shock and grief.

As some of you may know, I grew up around Knoxville, and the husband and I attended TVUUC several times before we moved to Nashville – Rev. Chris Buice performed our wedding ceremony. If you are able to assist them with a donation following Sunday’s shooting, please consider doing so.

I don’t have a sense of how aware of the event those of you outside of Tennessee are, but bekitty has a firsthand account at Shakesville.
