Thanksgiving Basket Collection

Every year, in the UUCC collects food to be distributed to Cambria families the week before Thanksgiving.

This is our 5th year working with Danilda Reyes and LINK Family Resources!

Our congregation donates a check to help pay for larger items, and everyone helps supply some of the additional food going into the baskets. We will be sending out a list of suggested items this week to everyone in the congregation.

Collection dates are on October 24 and 31 and November 7 and 14 at the church.

Here’s what to do:

Bring donations to the church on any of the Saturdays listed above between the hours of 12:30 and 2:00PM.

We will have a volunteer staffing the back door.

Please have your items in a sturdy bag.

Be sure that none of the food is past its due date.

For fresh food like potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, or squash, we recommend bringing it in November—closer to our distribution date.

If you wish to leave food at the back door on one of those Saturdays, that is fine if it is before Noon.

If you would like a volunteer to do a pickup, call Kris Fox at 805-203-5428 or Cat Lekich at 805-909-2599.

This is one of the few congregation-wide activities we do.

We hope you will join the SEJC in making this food drive a success!
