UU the Vote – 11 Sept.
“Our second postcard-writing event on Sunday 11th was another rousing success. We are rolling right along, with folks writing in-person at Coffee Hour and “virtually,” at home. Come join us at Coffee Hour in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, September 18! We are writing postcards to be sent to BIPOC voters in Wayne County, NC, a traditionally under-represented population, to encourage them to vote early! A big Thank You to everyone who is  participating to help UU the Vote. Let’s keep this ball rolling!
For info: or just come by our table at Coffee Hour.”

Thank you very much.
Habitat for Humanity – October 1
Come make something beautiful with us! We are looking for 12 members to help with interior trim on a Habitat Home in the Nicholtown arera. No prior experience or specific skills required, skilled supervision is provided. Half-day (3.5 hours) and full-day (7 hours) shifts are available.
This is an ideal way to give back to the community and to make friends within the congregation.
For more information or to sign up, call Janet Aguilar: 864-414-1944. _________________________________________________________
Food Drive: Sunday, 9 October – GUUF Front Entrance
Social Justice is conducting another food drive to benefit Upstate Food Not Bombs (FNB) on Sunday, Oct 9. On a weekly basis, FNB provides food to 30 families in need, as well as numerous members of the unhoused community. In addition to canned food that can be eaten cold (like Vienna sausages), FNB needs complete pancake mix, syrup, rice, canned red/black beans, pasta, mayo, soups, pasta sauce, salt/pepper, oil, sugar, masa, plastic grocery bags, band-aids, and liquid hand & bar soap. In addition to food, as winter is approaching, FNB is asking for tents, tarps, sleeping bags and backpacks.  We’re also accepting checks: Please make your check out to GUUF and include “Food Not Bombs” on the memo line and we’ll purchase items on your behalf.
Look for Janet Aquilar at the GUUF front entrance.
