ACM Offering Recipients

DonatingAt the Canadian Unitarian Council’s Annual Conference and Meeting each year, our tradition is to donate the offering taken at the Sunday Worship Service to organization(s) outside the CUC, recommended by the host committee. For many years, attendees have contributed thousands of dollars to locally based organizations that pursue social justice close to home and around the world
