BRUNSWICK — The Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick raised $8,444 to donate to four local charities.

Oasis Free Clinics, Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project, Four Directions, and Mid Coast Hospital’s Addiction Resource Center will each receive $2,111. The money was raised through the church’s “Concerts for a Cause” series, holiday fair, and the UUCB auction. Charities were selected from a list of “Charities with Soul,” which the congregation votes on at the beginning of each fiscal year.

Oasis Free Clinics offers free medical and dental services to 18- to 64-year-old patients in the Midcoast area who cannot afford care.

The Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project provides resources and collaborates with officials to ensure that immigrants can navigate the ins and outs of the legal system.

Four Directions aims to improve the conditions of the four Native American tribes in Maine through financial education and assistance.

Finally, Mid Coast Hospital’s Addiction Resource Center offers professional and confidential treatment programs for those with substance abuse or mental health problems.
