SMOC Food Drives

Upcoming Collection Dates:

  • Thursday, May 26th
  • Thursday, June 23rd
  • Thursday, July 28th

Collections take place from 4:30 to 5:45 pm at UUCSW’s Ruggles Street door.

Please consider participating in our monthly food drives to benefit the South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC) which provides meals for people in Worcester. They are especially in need of: 6-8 ounce juice boxes/pouches; fresh fruit, especially apples and clementines; 16 oz. packages of bologna, pre-packaged; and boxes of chewy/soft granola bars.

Please reach out to Libba Moore at libbamoore13@gmail.com ahead of time if there’s a better time for you. Food will be delivered to SMOC the Friday immediately following each collection date. Thank you for your help with this.

Help UUCSW Help People in Need

SMOC in Worcester has identified the need for clothing, especially for men. Donated items can include: new socks and underwear, and gently used sweatshirts, sweatpants, T-shirts, and jeans. Please bring your donations to UUCSW on the same day/time as the monthly food drive. If this timing does not work for you, please reach out to Nancy Siegal at Nsiegal185@msn.com or Pauline Sciarappa at psciarappa@gmail.com for other options. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
