Preparing for Thanksgiving Donations:  We at Pacific Unitarian Church, Pacific Unitarian if you would rather, are gathering the materials for the At-Risk individuals and families served by Rainbow Services in San Pedro.  Rainbow Services is an organization committed to ending violence in families, our homes and our communities.  Their goal is not only to offer immediate safety to survivors and their children, but also foster long-term stability, so they can have the healthy, nurturing relationships that they deserve.  Rainbow Services are located at 4453 West 7th Street in San Pedro, CA 90731.

Collections can be arranged up until OCTOBER 29TH.

Your donations of  non-perishable food items like canned pumpkin, pasta, potatoes,  stuffing, rice, gravy and canned vegetables of all kinds, are appreciated.  In addition to food items, Gift Cards to popular local supermarkets like “Vons,” “Ralphs,” and “Food For Less” are useful.  Items brought to church will be delivered on OCTOBER 30TH.  You can also drop off your donations directly at Rainbow Services.  Please call the Rainbow Services Office at 310-548-5450 to arrange a drop-off time — ask for Lily, the coordinator of this program.
