Social Action: Seasonal
Guest at Your Table
Thanks to all who joined fellow Unitarian Universalists across the country in upholding human rights work around the globe through a holiday season collection for the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization advancing human rights together with an international community of grassroots partners and advocates.
It’s not too late to participate! Donate online any time through June 30, 2023, listing your congregation as the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua:
Your tax deductible donation of $40 or more earns you and your family annual UUSC membership benefits. Your gift of $150 or more is eligible to be matched dollar for dollar by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock in Manhasset, NY.
Thanksgiving food drive
Thanks to all who supported the Chautauqua County Rural Ministry (CCRM) by donating non-perishable food items for Thanksgiving food baskets, distributed to our neighbors in need by the Rural Ministry. Thanks to Joan Houck, who coordinated this effort; to Janey Wagner, who delivered 7 bags of groceries to CCRM; and to all who helped fill those bags.
Our Thanksgiving food drive ended on November 16, but CCRM always welcomes donations to its food pantry. Throughout the year, you may take food items to CCRM (319 Washington Ave., Dunkirk), Monday-Friday, 9 AM to 3 PM.
