May 1: Food Bank Volunteer Night

Last month we bagged 8000 lbs of oranges for those locally who need a bit of assistance – in just 2 hours! Join us at the next Food Bank Volunteer night on

Thursday May 1 from 6 – 8 PM

Anyone over 7 years old can help! It’s always the 1st Thursday of each month. Usually we just put food in boxes on an assembly line – really easy, no lifting, no bending, great camaraderie. This is a wonderful way of helping locally those in need and strengthening our UUFSD community as well.
