Kids for Kids
“Kids for Kids” is CVUUS kids doing community service and social justice that helps other kids. All ages are welcome! It is part of the Religious Exploration program and meets on about 6 Sunday mornings each year. There are also ongoing projects.Grown ups are always welcome to participate in any of the activities. Bobbi Loney is the coordinator.
Guest at Your Table (GAYT) is UUSC’s annual intergenerational program to raise support for and awareness about key human rights issues. Since UUSC works in more than 20 countries, with over 60 grassroots partners, there are thousands of individuals involved in and who benefit from the work that our members make possible. This year’s theme is Women Leaders, Strong Communities. CVUUS kids will sell ornaments they made last month after services through December to support UUSC’s annual Guest at Your Table and BLUU. We hope everyone visits our table in Ross Fellowship Hall to buy an ornament. Extra donations will be gladly received too, and anyone may take home a Guest at Your Table box or envelope to fill through December. Our “guest” this year is Monica Curca, who runs Activate Labs, a program that brings art, story, and music making to Central American refugees on our border. She says “We need joy, creavity, art, and self-expression to return us to ourselves…because you can just get lost in sorrow.”
