Supporting Micro-Enterprises September 12 - November 11
Drop off shoes in the garage on Sunday mornings. Drop off shoes on the side porch any day, any time.
UBB is partnering with Funds2Orgs to collect gently used and new shoes that will be sent to entrepreneurs in developing countries, who will make the shoes available for local residents to buy. See how it works. All kinds of shoes can be in the mix: athletic shoes, dress shoes, boots, sandals...even cleats! Shoes should be new or in very good condition, ready to be worn by adults and children in countries such as Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
This is a 60-day campaign, so you have time to look in the far corners of your closet.
You also have time to let your family members and friends know about the drive.
Unity by the Bay is a member of the coalition of local churches that support and staff My Brother’s Pantry, a food resource on the Broadneck Peninsula. If you can help, contact Rich Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UBB supports residents (some of them homeless) along the B&A Trail in Glen Burnie by stocking the food box in Flower Box #42. You can contribute to this community service by bringing canned goods (pop-tops are preferred), other nonperishables, and personal care items to the blue tub on the side porch at UBB. Rich Brooks and Margaret Hardy coordinate this much-appreciated resource. In addition to canned goods, they welcome financial donations so that they can buy what the residents can use. Contact Rich Brooks at email@example.com.
If you or someone you know could use food support, leave a message at My Brother's Pantry (410-757-5190). Someone will return your call within 24 hours to arrange assistance.
A noontime Al-Anon group is being formed at Unity by the Bay. If you are interested in participating, please contact the District 15 coordinator, Terry Conroy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
