UUS:E Food and Supplies Drive

As part of our efforts to help supply needed food and house hold goods for the local community during the pandemic, UUS:E will be conducting a food/goods drive in the coming weeks for MACC (Manchester Area Conference of Churches) and East of the River Mutual Aid Society. The drive will supplement our UUS:E community outreach cash offerings for June and July, which will also be dedicated to addressing food insecurity.
 
Members and friends can drop off their donations (see below for needed items) at UUS:E anytime starting June 20 and deposit them in the metal bin located at the front entrance of UUS:E.  Volunteers will also be available as couriers to pick up food items from your home and take them to the church, if you need that help.  Appropriate social distancing procedures will be utilized by the couriers.  
 
For questions about the program, contact Jim Adams at jimadamsuu@gmail.com or 860-682-2564.  If you need a courier or are willing to volunteer as a courier, please contact Bob Knapp at rwknapp@snet.net
