Report from the Social Action Committee

by Diane Collins

As usual the holidays have come sooner than seems possible. The committee wishes everyone a fine & happy holiday with many good things to appreciate!
In the coming months we will be focusing on Criminal Justice. We are working in collaboration with Catholic Charities, NAACP, and local law enforcement on racial profiling issues. Our congregation will be looking at prison release re-entry programs and ways of supporting families visiting their loved ones. You all have been bringing gifts for prison inmates without family or friends. Gift lists are near the holiday tree in the UUCGF foyer. Thanks so much!

Lastly, and in the spirit of giving which lasts throughout the year, we continue to need volunteers to serve food at the Open Door Soup Kitchen on the 4th Monday of every month. I’ll be placing a sign-up sheet on the “Social Action” table where we gather for coffee and conversation.

The next committee meeting is December 9th after service. All are welcome!
