The last two weeks have seen two devastating and record-breaking hurricanes hit the United States. One was the wettest tropical hurricane ever recorded over the continental states, and the other was arguably the most intense Atlantic hurricane ever recorded in terms of sustained wind speed.
You can help: the UUSC and UUA have set up joint recovery and relief funds, and the UU College of Social Justice is collecting info on those who would like to volunteer to help with recovery efforts. Half of all funds raised will go to at-risk populations served by UUSC partners and half will support UU congregations and members most affected. Take action (clicking through leads to both Harvey and Irma funds).
