Act for Justice
As Unitarian Universalists, we are committed to creating a more compassionate, just, and sustainable world. Here are some of the things we are doing and some of the ways you can help us.
Help us feed the hungry
During the coronavirus pandemic, UUFR is still supporting Love Wins, a ministry that provides hot meals to homeless individuals. Most weeks, individuals are asked to drop off groceries in the UUFR parking lot on Fridays, 11 a.m. – 12 noon. Contact Linda Liles at [email protected] for more information.
