Community Projects Team

The Emergency Aid Coalition, our long-term partner organization helping the homeless in Houston, needs our help! This week, the EAC would appreciate your donations of canned fruits and macaroni and cheese! (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.

Blood Drive

First UU will sponsor another blood drive from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm on Sunday, August 1st. In the past, the Blood Center has followed strict safety protocols and required appointments. The August Blood Drive will, likewise, follow safety guidelines that are in place at the time of the drive. Check back here closer to August for the current guidelines and appointment link.
