Other Fundraising

 

Several other activities and events supported by other WUU volunteers beyond the Stewardship Committee help fund our mission.

The Auction: During this annual event, which is our major WUU “funraiser”, we gather to enjoy fellowship, food and music as we bid for goods and services donated by members, friends and area merchants.

The Yard Sale: In the spring, we sell a wide array of donated items, including housewares, hardware, garden tools and other small equipment, bric a brac, linens, seasonal supplies, jewelry and gently used clothing.

Bed & Breakfast: WUUs offer to host visitors to the Williamsburg area (typically other UUs from out of town) for overnight visits and a light breakfast in our homes. Hosts stipulate dates and criteria for guests (number of visitors, no smoking, etc.)

Equal Exchange: Several Sundays each month, high quality fair-trade coffee and chocolate are sold following the worship service. These sales support fair labor and trade practices on coffee plantations, and WUU receives a commission.
