In February we bagged 4800 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 March 6th from 6 – 8 PM. Anyone over 7 years old can help! We meet 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. The San Diego Food Bank distributes over 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! Email Sara Ohara at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in joining us.

The program is a powerful resource that helps reduce stigma and educate the community, including health care and law enforcement providers. “I.O.O.V.” is a collaborative effort of recovering individuals who share compelling and personal testimonies of coping with mental illness while reclaiming rich and meaningful lives.
Generosity Sunday contributions from UUFSD members will be used to operate the 2014 program, including a small stipend to In Our Own Voice presenters, travel expense reimbursement and training materials. The program’s 2014 goals include:
