Interfaith Welcome Coalition
To aid Central American women and children refugees, we are supporting/working with this San Antonio group of interfaith workers. Needs vary daily. Please email email@example.com and place IWC in the Subject Line for current needs or more information.
New Braunfels MLK Association
To commemorate and celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, UUNB is committing volunteer hours and other support to the NB MLK Association. The Association is sponsoring an annual memorial march and related activities during the anniversary of Dr. King’s birth.
Fair Trade Coffee Purchasing
Fair trade coffee at UUNB helps in FOUR ways:
- It helps the farmer earn a fair price for his crop;
- The UU Service Committee receives a percentage of each bag sold;
- The profit from our sales pays for the coffee our congregation consumes during our programs; and
- You benefit by getting Equal Exchange coffee at a lower cost than you would have to pay at name-brand grocery stores.
It’s a win-win-win-win! Fair trade chocolate is also available, but only from December through January every year.
UUNB Refugee Support Network
The UUNB Refugee Support Network helps refugees from Central America and elsewhere who are seeking asylum in the United States. We participate through the Interfaith Welcome Coalition (IWC) in San Antonio in these ways: collecting clothing and needed items; volunteering at the Welcome Home; promoting community awareness and legislative relief; and attending monthly IWC meetings. For more information or to join the network, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and type ‘Refugee Support Network’ in the subject line.
Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
The UU Service Committee is the vehicle through which we support humanitarian programs both domestically and abroad. Donations may be made through our UUNB Service Committee or through the UUSC website.
