Serve Dinner at Montrose Grace Place

A dedicated team from First Unitarian Universalist takes a meal to the unsheltered youth at Montrose Grace Place every fifth Thursday (about four times a year). Cook or serve a dish or help in the kitchen. The next opportunity is November 30th. If you are interested contact Mary Ann or the church office.

Thanks!

Thanks to all who donated food for our 3rd Annual Fall "Feed the Community" Food Drive! The Emergency Aid Coalition was impressed and thankful for all the food we brought to them on November 19.

We received thanks from Friends of Phillis Wheatley High School. Read here the good that your Shared Offering donations provided for the students of Phillis Wheatley!
We were also given a spotlight in their newsletter:

"We are so very gratified to continue our partnerships from previous years. The First Unitarian Universalist Church generously donated a huge quantity of shampoo, hair conditioner, soap, deodorant, razors, body wash, sanitary napkins, tampons, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, and much, much more to the students of Phillis Wheatley High School. We are so grateful for their kindness and support. In particular, we wish to thank Warren Snipes and his committee for their generosity in organizing this donation.

In addition, we benefitted from two shared offerings of the Church, which greatly facilitated our ability to begin the two new programs of emergency food and bus passes mentioned above. Furthermore, individual members of the Church donated clothing and began tutoring at the school."

Animeals

Sometimes the most devoted friend an elderly person has is their companion pet, but it’s not always easy for someone on a fixed income. The Community Projects Team will be collecting dry cat and dog food on February 25, March 3 and March 10. The food will be portioned and packaged by our UU Youth and given to Interfaith Ministries who will deliver the meals to isolated and underserved seniors.

Montrose Grace Place

On Thursday, March 29, we will again be hosting the evening meal to the youth at Montrose Grace Place. Please let Rev. Scott know if you’d like to help cook or serve with the team from our church.

Annual Easter Parade

We will be collecting non-perishable food for our annual “Feed the Community” Food Drive and Easter Parade on March 17, March 24, and March 31.

Upcoming Projects

The restoring of historic homes in Freedmen’s Town at the Rutherford B.H. Yates Museum continues. If you are handy with a hammer or paintbrush, contact the team to volunteer your time. Read about the work the Community Projects Team has done here.
