There is always something that needs doing here at UUFD whether that means serving our community inside or outside our walls. One can serve on the Board, assist with or lead Sunday services, offer hospitality, teach a class, participate in interfaith events, or lead a new social justice initiative.
Each August we hold a community work day. We come together to help care for our building and grounds and welcome the participation of a group of students from Milikin University. Great fun is had by all!
In November, some of our families volunteer to help out with a local Thanksgiving food basket drive.
Each December we set up a Giving Tree to help a local family in need at Christmas. A tree is decorated with ornaments that list a child’s name, age and suggested gift. Each participant takes one “ornament” or more, buys the gifts, then brings them back here for our children to wrap and help deliver.
Other activities coming soon to our horizon include participating in the Adopt-a-Street program and sponsoring a Parent’s Night Out.
