Poverty Hunger and Homelessness

UUCW Economic Justice Task Force

The purpose of UUCW’s Economic Justice Task Force is to plan and implement projects which involve direct service, education and advocacy on issues relating to economic justice.

One of our major efforts is our Split the Plate program wherein 50% or loose cash or undesignated offerings are donated to a non-profit organization.   We also sponsor Service Sundays during which food and other needed items are collected for local non-profit agencies.

We also lead the Annual Unitarian Universalist Service Committee Guest at Your Table collection.

Guest House Meal Program

UUCW adults and youth provide and serve food to homeless men approximately four times a year at The Guest House.  For more information, contact: Eileen Gleeson

Fourth Sunday for Food

On the fourth Sunday of each month we collect nonperishable food for a pantry in the metro area.  Families are asked to choose a food pantry in their area to receive this food.  On non-specified dates we collect clothing, hygiene products and toiletries, and bedding for those in need. For more information, contact: Ellen Newbauer

Nicaragua Brigades4840792516_6f2ce7f8bf_z.JPG

Since 2004, UUCW has sent more than 100 adults and youth to Nicaragua to build houses and connections with impoverished residents of tiny villages there.  Our partner organization in this work is Bridges to Community. The UUCW Nicaragua Brigades are a cross-cultural service program.  As we live and work in a community in Nicaragua, we learn, grow, and come back to our local community ready to continue to build awareness of global issues, and work for justice. For more information, contact: Jim Fischer or download our brochure.
