Help to recognize and select local charitable nonprofits as recipients of a Designated Offering.
Serving on the Designated Offering Committee is truly inspirational and a wonderful opportunity to connect with the larger community and to become familiar with the accomplishments of the local charitable service organizations and the dedicated individuals serving them. Committee members thereby become more familiar with Port Townsend and the surrounding community and the needs of its people.
The congregation benefits by becoming more knowledgeable about these community organizations, their needs and what they do. By donating to the various recipients, QUUF members can feel they are making a difference in the world by enabling the nonprofits to continue their work and enrich our community and ultimately the world.
Committee members must be organized, responsible, capable of working independently, able to contact and communicate with people they do not know and willing to follow through on their assignments.
No special training is necessary. Committee members are given enough information to enable them to carry out their responsibilities, and assistance is provided by the Chair if needed.
