June 1st Food Bank Volunteer Night!

Featured

Join us on June 1st – its a wonderful way to help those in need LOCALLY, put SERVICE IS OUR PRAYER in ACTION, and strengthen our UUFSD community as well.

In May 2800 lbs. of corn was bagged for those in-need – Wow! Yhanks everyone! LOVE, when we’re able to give fresh food to San Diegans!

The San Diego Food Bank distributes more than 20 million pounds of food annually to individuals, families, and a network of nonprofit organizations that work to alleviate hunger throughout San Diego county. They need our help! PLUS it’s fun!

Our Food Bank Volunteer Night is always the first Thursday of each month from 6 – 8 PM, and just 20 minutes from UUFSD. Anyone over 10 years old can help! Mostly we just put food in boxes on an assembly line or bag fresh produce – really easy, no lifting, no bending, and great camaraderie. In April we husked 2500 pieces of corn – in just 2 hours!

Support for the Bridge Act, House of Representative Bill 496

support the bridge act House of Representative Bill 496

Our Immigration Reform Team is asking Representative Issa to cosponsor the bipartisan Bridge Act. The Bridge Act would give hundreds of thousands of Dreamers a temporary relief from deportation, keeping families intact, allow them to continue their education and work and allow them to pursue their dreams. If you are in Representative Issa’s congressional district, please pass by the Social Justice table and sign a letter supporting the Bridge Act.
