Donate Blood at First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston

BLOOD MOBILE COMING TO FIRST UU CHURCH!
Sign-Up Now!

We hope many members and friends sign up to Donate Blood on Sunday, February 27! Please click HERE to schedule your appointment and read about COVID-19 precautions taken by the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center at these donation sites.

The Emergency Aid Coalition, our long-term partner organization helping the homeless in Houston, needs our help! Please allow EAC (Emergency Aid Coalition) a much needed Temporary Pause in accepting clothing donations. The only exception right now is that EAC needs blankets, towels, bed linens, and coats for men, women & children. The EAC is also still accepting food items:  Large jars of Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly and small cans of Vienna Sausage are especially desired.


(Please contact the Community Projects Team if you are able to donate these or any other needed items and/or volunteer). Click HERE to visit the EAC site.
