The Alternative Gift Market occurs during the holidays and is a fundraiser for a variety of local and global charities. Tables are set up on three Sundays to provide information and facilitate donations. Learn more about the Alternative Gift Market event.
We shop for, cook, deliver, and serve dinner for people at the EECM shelter on the first Sunday of the month.
Habitat for Humanity
We organize Habitat for Humanity work parties about 4-5 times a year. Members and friends work at a home site doing such tasks as painting, framing windows, smoothing drywall, laying ceramic tile, clearing brush, building fences and sheds and landscaping. It is a highly rewarding experience for all involved.
Holiday Toy and Mitten Drive
First Unitarian Church coordinates a toy, mitten and hat drive for local children and families who receive health services through a federally qualified program for low-income and uninsured families. Toys, hats and mittens are collected at the church and delivered to the health center in mid-December.
The Khasi Hills Partnership supports our UU partners in the Khasi Hills of India to maintain a decade-long association and fund special projects at the Annie Margaret Barr School in Kharang, India.
