Transitions-Mental Health Association (TMHA) received a wonderful $2,090 donation from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Luis Obispo County.
On Tuesday, Oct. 14, the check was presented to Jill Bolster-White, Executive Director of TMHA by Judy Hornaday, a member of the Community Outreach Offering Committee on behalf of Reverend Rod Richards and the congregation.
“I am delighted with the significant level of support that the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship provides the entire nonprofit community and am doubly pleased that TMHA received such generous support from the congregation,” Bolster-White said.
“The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship hopes that by supporting TMHA as a community partner that they are helping their congregants to feel better connected to the work and mission of TMHA, which is to eliminate stigma and promote recovery and wellness for people with mental illness through work, housing, community and family support services,” Hornaday said.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Luis Obispo County donates their second Sunday offering each month to a local non-profit serving the community. In the past four years they have given away over $27,000 to worthy causes. Non-profit organizations can fill out an application for consideration on their website, www.uuslo.org.
