Hospitality House donation

The First Universalist Church recently donated $3,600 to the new Hospitality House, sponsored by the Knox County Homeless Coalition. Each year, the congregation donates half of its plate collection for the year to charitable organizations.

While the money usually is divided into 10 shares, this year congregants opted to donate a large portion of the funds to the Hospitality House to get it up and running, with the remaining funds paid to the City of Rockland in lieu of property tax.
