Our Fellowship’s mission statement asks us “to act on our UU Principles to improve our community locally and globally through social action and outreach.” Once a month, during the worship service, we take up a Special Collection fora local, national or international organization that exemplifies one or more  UU Principles. UUFES members and friends suggest causes or organizations to be considered by the Special Collections Committee, which coordinates this outreach. Recent Special Collections include:
