Come Sing a Song With Me"
"Music is an outburst of the soul."

The Worship Committee would like to invite you to share your favorite poem or original poetry for a service on July 16th celebrating the power of poetry as a form of resistance and resilience.

Duffel Bags for
Foster Care Children
Our Girl Scout Troop 10507 and the UUCH Social Justice Committee are joining forces with Girl Scout Troop 10341 of North Central Alabama to fill
100 duffel bags for foster care children
Most children enter foster care with nothing but the clothes on their back because the social workers cannot wait for them to pack.
Madison County alone has 15-20 new children enter foster care
. We want to help the children in foster care by giving them some of the things they may need.
With your help, we can make a difference! Starting July 9, there will be a box in the UUCH Fellowship Hall collecting new item donations to fill the duffle bags. These items can be for boys or girls, ages infant to 18, and of all races. Here is the list of items needed by the children in foster care:
- All kinds of toiletries (combs, brushes, shampoo, deodorant, conditioner, soap, body wash, hygiene products for teenage girls, lotion, etc.)
- Hair accessories for girls/all ages
- Ball caps for boys
- Diapers, bib, baby toys, pacifiers, wipes, bottles
- Shaving supplies
- Socks, underwear
- Puzzles, crayons
It is tough being a child in foster care. We are trying to make it a little easier through the Duffel Bag Project. We appreciate anything you can contribute. No donation is too small.
