At the end of 2019, UUFA was in fourth place in the friendly competition among 25 faith communities, CANtributing 3655 nonperishable food items to the Athens Area Emergency Food Bank! This number is over 1000 more items than 2018! Many thanks to all who CANtributed in 2019.
The wicker basket is willing and able to receive your donations of nonperishable food items, and cash or checks are also welcome. Please put the following in the memo line of your check donation: “Food Bank” and 1-8016.
Current targeted items are peas, saltines, and cereal.
Could you consider a CANtribution of one item a day? Or every other day? Or consider a birthday challenge (bring one item for each year you’re celebrating)?
For further information, contact Karen Solheim (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This initiative is hosted by the Social Action Committee (SAC), a part of the UUFA Justice Cluster.
