SOCIAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE
HOLIDAY GIFT CARDS & FOOD DROP-OFF
A BIG thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday. We collected $305 in gift cards, $135 in checks and 25 grocery bags filled with items. Even better, it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces again. If you missed the event, you could still write a check to Iglesia Jesus el Rey and write ” Ministerio Panes y Peces” on the memorandum line. All checks will go towards buying fresh fruit and veggies. Mail checks to GUUF at PO Box 4518, Greenville, SC 29608 and we’ll gladly deliver it for you.

HELP REDUCE METHANE EMISSIONS
More than 20% of global carbon emissions come from agriculture and food production—and half of all methane emissions come from cattle and rice crops alone. If we want to slow deforestation, improve air and water quality, improve personal health, and shrink emissions, changing the way we eat is the most effective way to do so. Buy local, and eat meat-free at least 2 days a week. See kickstart.pcrm.org for meal plans.
