Supporting Local Non-Profit Organizations
On one Sunday of each month, our offering goes to support a local non-profit organization. This effort raises over $2,500 annually.
Addressing Homelessness and Hunger
We are a leading congregation in supporting Family Promise of San Joaquin (http://familypromisesjc.org/), a local interfaith effort that proactively addresses homelessness in our community through providing comprehensive services to families at risk. We also coordinate food and clothing drives to support local agencies supporting families facing food insecurity and poverty.
We are leaders in promoting a healthy, sustainable and equitable community. In 2022 we established the First UU Church Waterwise Garden in collaboration with the Master Gardeners of San Joaquin County and Cal Water. On the third Saturday of each month we host a "parking lot event" where we collect recyclables and donations for community organizations. In September each year we also participate in Coastal Cleanup Day, cleaning up the Calaveras River. We also maintain an “Adopt-a-Road” crew that provides ongoing clean-up on a county road and we host an annual water-wise plant sale with plantings from our own gardens. .
We coordinate and participate in a variety of community efforts to promote peace, justice, equity, and inclusion, including community forums, petition drives, and demonstrations. Each year we also participate in the Peaceful Holiday Fair, sponsored by the Peace and Justice Network of San Joaquin County and the San Joaquin Pride Festival.
