Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson

Sep 28: Social Justice and Education

 

We welcome diversity. We commit to undo racism and all other oppressions in ourselves, our church, 

and our community.

 Justice can sleep for years and awaken when it is least expected. A miracle is nothing more than dormant justice from another time arriving to compensate those it has cruelly abandoned. Whoever knows this is willing to suffer, for he knows that nothing is in vain. - Mark Helprin

Share the Plate October, 2021
 
Our Share the plate for the month of August is Emerge Center Against Domestic Abuse
 
Answering the Call...
…to End Domestic Violence is about engaging our community in ending the entire spectrum of abuse that so many of our family, friends and colleagues experience every day. The question isn’t what should we do but, rather, are we willing to do something?
 
 
Our Share the Plate for August was our very own ministry, No More Deaths. We collected, and sent $300.50 to them. Thank you to everyone who donated.

CASA MARIA EGG RUN 9/28/21
 
A big thank you to all UUCT’ers donating hard boiled eggs, other canned and dried foods, clothing, shoes, towels, toiletries, books, pet food and bread bags! We gathered 50 dozen hard boiled eggs!
Celeste Rogers rode “shotgun” which was great, as we had so much to unload with the help of happy hard working CASA MARIA volunteers.
CASA MARIA serves 500 homeless and low income Tucson residents each day! Our hard boiled eggs have become a staple in the daily food bags that each of our hungry neighbors receive! They also get two sandwiches, a piece of fruit, a drink, something savory and something sweet.
Across the street to the kitchen and food take out house, is another house where we drop off the clothing, toiletries, books, kids toys etc. there is a shower available for our homeless friends, and so our towel donations are much appreciated.
In addition to all of this, EL RIO set up a free clinic on Tuesday's and Thursday’s for health checks, immunizations and meds. Anyone needing extra help will be referred to an EL RIO clinic for further assistance. It’s an utterly amazing set up! I wanna say, “three cheers for CASA MARIA”.
