"As the cold descends, we decorate our homes and apartments, making our hearts grow warmer. As the cold reminds us of our human need for warmth, we donate to charities to help our neighbors. We celebrate Love."
--Rev. Jim Robinson
For our social justice work for the holiday season, December 1st to January 12th, we have switched our focus to "Hunger and Homelessness in our Neighborhood". Our brown envelope collection during the Sunday offering will be for our own Five Points Cluster CommUnity Closet. This will allow us to buy essential items like toothpaste, socks, etc., which people can receive along with free clothing on the second Saturday of each month at the Universalist Unitarian Church of Brockton.
Our Christmas Eve collection will be for our area's main homeless shelter: MainSpring House in Brockton.
We also invite members to participate in the "Our Giving Tree" program which benefits children through West Side Benevolent Circle's Gift for Kids program and adults at Shattuck Hospital (our own gifting program inspired by a church member who works there).
We are also working with the Unitarian Church of Sharon to augment their hunger and homelessness relief programs through offering "Shopping for Justice" grocery cards. Five percent of the price of these grocery cards goes directly to this effort!
