Nov 30: Social Justice and Education

 

We welcome diversity. We commit to 

 

undo racism and all other oppressions in 

 

ourselves, our church,

 

and our community.

 
"We are a country where people of all backgrounds, all nations of origin, all languages, all religions, all races, can make a home. America was built by immigrants."

ANGEL HEART
HOLIDAY KIDS PAJAMA DRIVE
 
 
UUCT will be supporting the Angel Heart Pajamas Project with a Holiday kids’ new pajama drive. By the end of 2021, Angel Heart will have delivered 35,000 new pajamas – supporting eighty different agencies in Tucson who provide services for needy children. Angel Heart Pajama Project has been chosen as a UUCT Share the Plate recipient for 2022.
 
While all new pajamas are welcome, they have a need for older boys and girls’ pajamas- sizes medium and up. Many young teenagers are being removed from the home because of the increase in domestic violence in Tucson. Let’s all put one pair of pajamas on our Christmas list to support a Tucson child in crisis.
 
We have different drop-off options this year. Please put the PJs in a bag with your name.
Church drop off: 
·        Every Tuesday morning from 8:00-9:00AM
