Our Shelter Partner in Mexico Needs a Few Things
The Attention Center for the Migrant Exodus (C.A.M.E.) Shelter in Agua Prieta, Mexico, has asked for UUCT’s help. In the past, our members have donated food and clothing, but the shelter for asylum seekers asked specifically for donations of these supplies:
- Hand Soap
- Liquid Dishwashing soap
- Clorox Wipes
- Diapers/Pampers, sizes 3 and 4
- A couple of industrial mops and brooms
- Toothpaste (no need for toothbrushes)
- sanitary protection (tampons and pads)
- dental floss
- antibacterial hand soap
- first aid kits
To donate, bring your items to UUCT 8-9 am,
Thursday, June 18 and Saturday, June 20.
) if you have any questions.
Invest in Ed Petition Drive
On Thursday, June 18 and Saturday, June 20,from 7:00-9:00 A.M., there will be a drive-by petition signing in the church parking lot for the INVESTinED citizens' initiative. This is to approve a 3.5% income tax surcharge on earnings over $250k for single households and $500k for joint households, affecting approximately 1% of Arizona residents. Arizonans making $1000 a day will pay about $11 a day. This will raise $940 million in new permanent funding for public education. Everyone please make every effort to come on one of those days to add your name to support public education in our state! This will be our only chance to sign these petitions. We will be wearing masks, and you can use your own pen or a new pen that will be available.
Thanks so much for your support!
This will also be another chance to bring donations for the immigrant shelter in Agua Prieta and to buy coffee from Cafe Justo.
