The entire month of July UUCB we will be collecting non-perishable food and household and personal supplies for the Boulder County AIDS Project’s Pantry. The drive is sponsored by the Interfaith AIDS Coalition (IAC) (see picture). Each member congregation has a drive for the pantry at least one month a year. Judy Hunter and Dianne Ewing are UUCB’s reps to the IAC.
Low-income clients of BCAP receive items from the pantry to supplement their needs at no cost. Look for the collection basket near the front doors on Sundays and in the RE wing on other days during the entire month of July. Twice during July several UUCBers will pack groceries to be delivered to some of the clients who are unable to come to BCAP’s pantry. Let Dianne Ewing know, if you could help with the bagging.
If you would like to donate fresh food, please discuss with Dianne Ewing, so that we can get it to BCAP’s refrigerator in a timely manner. They do appreciate fresh donations, but only when there is refrigerator space. BCAP has a garden plot to grow fresh produce for the pantry. They also purchase fresh dairy, meat, and bread products for the pantry, but fresh donations help them stretch their budget. Do not bring any fresh food without prior discussion.
