SMOC Food Drives
Please consider participating in our monthly food drives to benefit the South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC) which provides meals for people in Worcester.
Please reach out to Libba Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of time if there’s a better time for you. Food will be delivered to SMOC the Friday following each collection date. Thank you for your help with this.
The Shelter especially asks for packaged bologna; juice boxes; chewy granola bars; and bags of fruit. They are always in need of underwear, socks, and t-shirts – in particular for men.
Upcoming Collection Dates:
As of December, SMOC food and clothing donations may be dropped off in the box in the Sanctuary every Sunday. We will no longer be collecting monthly on Thursday afternoons. Bologna can be stored in the upstairs refrigerator in the parlor.
Below are the upcoming Sundays before the monthly Friday delivery, so you are sure to bring in your donations by that Sunday:
Sunday December 17
Sunday January 21
Sunday February 18
Sunday March 17
Sunday April 21
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 email@example.com for other options. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
