On Saturday, April 30, First Unitarian won the 2021 CUC Shining Lights Award for the You’ve Got Mail project.
The Shining Lights award celebrates UU congregations and communities with stories of inspiration and high capacity to sustain our lights, now and in the future.
The You’ve Got Mail Project, led by Barb Wentworth in memory of her son Mark Jorgensen, matched members of the congregation with those living with a developmental disability at New Visions Toronto. Members sent in notes or interesting postcards to brighten the lives of their pals during the lockdown in 2020-2021.
Congratulations to Barb and the team on this well-deserved award. Thank you for keeping our lights alive!
