Let’s Show Our Sky Island UU Christmas Spirit!

We have an opportunity to help several families for Christmas. The Board approved a plan presented by Sharon Travis who is employed as a case manager for Catholic Community Services. The agency serves families without regard to any religious beliefs they might have. All the families have critical needs in these times of job loss, lack of safe and available daycare and numerous other issues. For some it’s a choice of paying rent or getting Christmas gifts for their children. For many two parent families only one has a job. For some families there is no income beyond food stamps or minimal cash assistance through DES.
Please consider purchasing a Walmart, Safeway, or Fry’s food card. Any amount will be appreciated. These will be distributed by CCS to the families in need. If you prefer not to go to a store to purchase cards (understandable in this age of COVID) but want to help, you could send a check (in any amount) to Sharon, and she will purchase the gift card to be given. Sharon will inform you of the purchase made.
Checks or gift cards can be mailed to Sharon (See Church Directory). If you have any questions or need further information, e-mail rstravis1@msn.com. Gift cards or checks must be mailed by Monday December 7th to ensure that they arrive in time.
If you’re not comfortable mailing cards or checks, please leave them at church in the church office on the glass desk in the container marked “CCS”. Deadline to leave cards or checks at church is Friday December 11 at 3PM. If you need alternative arrangements other than mailing or leaving gift cards/checks at church, please contact Sharon.
Thank you Sky Island Family for anything you are able to do.

New Things To Do at Sky Island UU

Wondering Wednesday:
WW will continue as a place to gather, visit, and sometimes discuss a topic. Until January 6, we will meet informally to check in on each other and perhaps share memories of holiday seasons past and suggestions for this unusual 2020 one.
