As in previous years, we'll be participating in Adopt-a-Family this Advent/Christmas season! Rather than buying gifts and food baskets for families in need, the UUCDC is asking that everyone to contribute gift cards. Social workers will distribute the cards to families in late December. You can sign up to contribute on SignUp Genius (https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0c4caca92ea5fa7-adopt).
At the moment, it looks like the greatest need is for children's clothing/gifts as well as diapers!
Please send the gift cards to UUCDC or drop them off in the locked donation boxes in the Sanctuary. All donations are due by Sunday, December 12. You may also give a monetary gift (https://uucdc.breezechms.com/give/onlinechoose then "Give to 4004 Contributions: Adopt A Family" in the drop-down menu).
