    The collection taken up

    Learner

    I am reading a book " to kill a mocking bird" and read this sentence.

    " The collection taken up today and for the next three Sundays will go to
    Helen-his wife, to help her out at home."

    What is taken up in this sentence?

    I know The collection taken up today and for the next three Sundays is the subject.

    Thanks

    Re: The collection taken up

    I dont think you understood my question.
    I know what the sentence means.
    My question is the collection is like a subject taken up or given is a participle.
    Having said that My question is why It has a participle verb after a subject??
    It is because they omitted the main verb or because it is implied ?
