Food Bank Volunteer Night – Thursday, August 6

Join us at the San Diego Food Bank in the Miramar area; just 20 minutes from UUFSD! It’s always from 6:00 – 8:00 PM – anyone over 7 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, great camaraderie.

Food Bank Update: This week we bagged 7,200 lbs. of plums which will be enjoyed by children who would otherwise not have any fresh fruit most days. Thank you all so very much! Our next Volunteer Night is Thurs. August 6th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

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!

ASK: Asking Saves Kids

The ASK (Asking Saves Kids) Campaign promotes a simple idea with the potential to help keep kids safe. ASK, “Is there an unlocked gun in your house?” before sending your child over to play.

Today is National ASK Day. This was taken at UUFSD in Solana Beach at our memorial wall. My signs are an ASK for children, families, loved ones.
