Special Scholarship Fund for Women Affected by Hurricanes
Special Need! Be the Spirit! Kindle the Flame!
We don’t know how many of our UU sisters have been affected by hurricanes in Texas and Louisiana this year, but certainly we know many have been impacted. In February 2018, we’re hosting the SWUUW Conference in Austin, TX. We have set up a special scholarship fund for women directly affected by the hurricanes. We want them to be able to get away for a women’s spiritual weekend to help them renew their energy.
We’re asking our membership to donate what they can to help these women that might not otherwise be able to come. We hope we can help at least 10 women to attend that wouldn’t be able to come. For 10 people including hotel, we need to raise $2250.00. We will ask that they pay $75.00 to confirm their reservation and provide their own transportation to the conference.
The conference is February 23-25, 2018 in Austin. Perhaps, if you’re unable to attend, you may help one these of women come. All donations are welcome. We have one donation of $500.00 already. Please help as you are able. Everything helps.
Thank you for your consideration, Conveners of the 2018 SWUUW Conference in Austin, TX
