One Sunday each month, UUCC selects a local nonprofit agency to support through a financial donation of half of that Sunday’s collection.  Below you will find this month’s recipient and a list of recipients so far from the 2022-23 church year. And you don’t have to wait until  Donate the Plate Sunday to contribute! Anytime leading up to Sunday, you can visit our website ( or text the amount you want to donate to (833) 624-0157 to make a donation.




This Month’s Donate the Plate Organization is

CHATT Foundation

The mission of CHATT Foundation is:

…to meet the most basic needs of hungry, homeless and vulnerable people in our community while offering a clear path to self-sufficiency.

40 years ago, we started as the Chattanooga Community Kitchen, and fed the hungry each year by the hundreds of thousands. Over that time, we also added other services for the homeless, like shelter and clothing and counseling. Today, we are no longer just a Kitchen. We are a Foundation for hope. We are the CHATT Foundation.



Our 2022-23 Donate the Plate Recipient Organizations:

Bridge Refugee Services:  Bridge Refugees Services Inc. works with the communities of Knoxville and Chattanooga to connect refugees to opportunities to grow and integrate into the Chattanooga community.
