From Judi Hetrick: Please consider adding a small gift to your list for one (or more) of the causes championed by the Social Justice Committee, HUUC. Here’s what you can do:
Buy a bowl for $10 to add to the $6,300 already raised by Empty Bowls for the Oxford Community Choice Food Pantry. Enough bowls are in our Sanctuary to allow you a good selection! Have enough bowls? Send a donation directly to the Oxford Community Choice Pantry at 400 W. Withrow St., Oxford 45056.
Join our Kiva group at http://www.kiva.org/team/hopedale_uu_community. Then give as little as $25 to help an entrepreneur elsewhere in the world support a family with a small business.
Remember the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee’s Guest at Your Table offering. If you missed Amy Shaw’s inspiring sermon Nov. 25, you can learn about this year’s guests at http://www.uusc.org/guest/2012-2013/myguests. Boxes for your table are available at church.
While stocking up for the holidays, remember to boycot all Georgia Pacific paper products. Avoid buying the brand names Angel Soft, Brawny, Dixie, Mardi Gras, Quilted Northern, Sparkle, and Vanity Fair – to protest Koch Industries’ record of damage to the environment.
Pledge to write a letter to Ohio or U.S. lawmaker, urging action on immigration reform. Watch this website for sample letters to get you started.
