Season of Service at PUC
“Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it can be removed by the actions of human beings.”
~ Nelson Mandela
Join with PUC and the Social Justice Committee as we commit to a Season of Service -- putting our UU Principles into practice by taking part in any or all of these social justice actions targeting poverty and homelessness in our community:
September 20 & 27 ~ Join the Peanut Gallery
We currently are collecting peanut butter to highlight our regular collection of food and toiletries for the clients of Harbor Interfaith Services in San Pedro. Unopened jars of peanut butter again will be collected by our RE kids this Sunday.
Look for our permanent, brightly painted box in the courtyard any time you have non-perishable food or toiletries to donate.
October ~ Service is a Warm Blanket
A warm blanket can make a world of difference to one person on a cold night. Throughout the month of October, we will be collecting clean, gently used blankets for the homeless clients of Harbor Interfaith.
November & December ~ Season of Giving
This holiday season we’ll focus on serving the needs of others with donation and volunteer opportunities for congregants of all ages and abilities. Families with children are welcome! We will collect food items, assemble food & gift baskets for both Harbor Interfaith and One Voice in Santa Monica, distribute Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets at Harbor Interfaith and, through the Adopt-a-Family program, share the spirit of giving with families in need.
The Social Justice Committee will meet on Wednesday, October 7 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Join us if you want to help organize our Season of Service and begin to brainstorm an agenda for the coming year!
