Personal care items
This year UUCNC is again collecting personal care items for distribution at the Silver Creek Food Pantry. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) does not provide the self-care items that we all need. Some people come to the food pantry asking for items such as soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes, feminine hygiene supplies and baby supplies.
During winter weather, please do not leave liquid, gel or aerosol products that might be damaged by freezing. Toilet paper, toothbrushes, bar soap and women’s sanitary supplies will not be impacted by the outdoor drop-off location.
If you are able, please leave your donated items in the covered container on the porch at 222 Temple St., Fredonia. Please make sure the lid is securely closed and weighted down. Each week, any items delivered there will be taken to Silver Creek. Thank you for supporting our neighbors in need.
Please donate your deposit cans and bottles!
Cash for Cans at 9504 NY-60, Fredonia, NY (on Route 60 just north of Route 83, large garage with a bright green roof, on the left coming from Route 20) continues to keep a tab for this ongoing fundraiser. Just drop off your deposit cans and bottles and tell them it’s for the UU Youth.
Please sort returnable plastic, glass, and cans into separate bags/cartons.
Call ahead to check when Cash for Cans will be open: 716 672-2274
Recycle ink cartridges
The Social Action Committee is collecting spent ink cartridges for recycling.
Please save ink cartridges until they can be delivered to our meetinghouse at 222 Temple St., Fredonia. Thank you.
