FOOD DRIVE FOR FOOD NOT BOMBS: SUNDAY, JUNE 23.
It’s time once again to help our partners at Upstate Food Not Bombs. GUUF is collecting donations of food & cash this coming Sunday, June 23, starting at 10:30 a.m. Here’s what’s needed:
Canned vegetables: Carrots, green beans, black/pinto beans, black-eyed peas, canned tuna/chicken/salmon, spam, vienna sausage, powdered/canned milk, flour, masa, complete pancake mix, syrup, oatmeal, peanut butter, sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, cooking/olive oil, spaghetti & sauce, small packages of rice, packaged snacks (like crackers/cheese or peanut butter) fruit snacks, energy bars, drink mixes like Crystal Light. FNB is also in need of cash to help defray the cost of their two storage units, and to purchase supplies for the hygiene kits that they distribute at the Monday food shares. No donation is too small: the need is acute and is greatly appreciated. Help to make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors who are unable, for the moment, to go it alone. For further info, email Janet Aguilar at: janetag1944@gmail.com.

Your donations may be placed ANYTIME in the Pat’s Pantry wagon at the entrance to the Narthex, where they will be picked up weekly. Thank you all for your support, FNB greatly appreciates our help.

UU the Vote on 23 June:
We are looking for 8 people to share 15 minutes of their time to help write postcards on Sunday, 23 June. Democracy is on the line this November, and we are working hard to get people out to vote. It’s just 15 minutes! Please join us in the Fellowship Hall after service. See you there!

Adopt A Highway news:
Despite predicted rain, 12 intrepid volunteers showed up at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, 18 May, for our quarterly clean-up. These stalwart souls removed 20 bags of trash from Old Buncombe Road near Lakeview Middle School. All teams were done by 11 a.m.
This is really a fun activity, and hopefully more of you can come out for the next one In August.
