In these days of difficulty, we Americans everywhere must and shall choose the path of social justice…the path of faith, the path of hope, and the path of love toward our fellow man."
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
In Unitarian Universalism, we have a legacy of "deeds, not creeds." As the majority of our UU principles pertain to social justice and environmental issues, Unitarian Universalists endeavor to put them into action, practicing them in our daily lives. Our Social Action Committee meets monthly to plan ongoing and new activities.
UUUS is involved with several charitable organizations through ongoing food, clothing and toy drives, our Share the Plate program and other programs. Through Share the Plate, we donate 40% of the Sunday plate offering to a different group each month, including:
- Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida
- Hope CommUnity Center, Office of Apopka Farmworkers Ministry
- Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando
- HOPE Helps of Central Florida
- Orange County Academy in Bithlo, a project of United Global Outreach
