Throughout the year

Social Action is one of the most important things we do at UUCS. The role of the SJ Committee is to help everyone in the congregation be involved in local, national, and global issues. Every member and friend is always welcome to come to a meeting to share ideas. We work for what we believe in: justice, equity, and compassion in human relations and in our relations with our world. Both our religious and our humanist teachings lead us to reach out and help others in the name of love.

Notes from the Social Action Committee:

Suggested Food Donation for 2018: Olive or canola oil, popcorn, toothpaste, and peanut butter are especially welcome.

The Social Action Committee is sponsoring a new way to donate to the TOTAL Ministries Food Bank. Each month, a category of healthier foods will be announced. If you can contribute the suggested foods, it helps fill a specific need. And remember: All Donations Are Welcomed And Appreciated!

Items Needed for Earth Day

Our Earth Day Festival is coming up on April 21st – please mark your calendars for that date. You will be needed to add your special talents and joy to that day.

In the meantime, please start saving toilet paper rolls for our children’s nature project that day. Please remove any excess paper from the rolls. I keep a plastic bag on a doorknob to receive mine. Hold them for us until March. These will become bird feeders for migrating and local birds. 🙂

We also need pinecones of all sizes for another project. Please collect these and we’ll call for them in January. Thanks!

You can email with any questions.
