Hurricanes' impact on Unitarian Universalists.
The UUA Web site today includes information about the widespread impact of hurricanes Frances, Ivan, and Charley on Unitarian Universalist congregations in Florida. The properties of the 73-member Friendship Fellowship at Pineda near the Indian River in Rockledge were destroyed, and several other church buildings throughout the state have been damaged. More immediately devastating are the destroyed, flooded, and battered homes of many UUs and their neighbors. (There are 43 Unitarian Universalist congregations in Florida, with 5,128 adult members and 1,032 children enrolled in religious education.) Sadly, one member of the UU Fellowship of Charlotte County died in hurricane Charley.
Disaster relief for the Florida District of the UUA may be sent — with "Disaster Relief Fund" in the memo line of your check — to:
1901 E. Robinson St. #18
Orlando FL 32803
The UUA Web site also includes some information about the impact of Charley on Unitarian Universalists in the Mid-South District.
