Service Sunday #2!

We had a great crowd for our second Service Sunday and achieved a great deal, including:
– 30 backpacks packed for those released from incarceration with Concord Prison Outreach
– 52 bags of kid-friendly food packed in decorated bags for Open Table
– 120 pounds of additional miscellaneous groceries collected for Open Table
– 51 rocks painted to share with neighbors at the Healing Garden and our Welcome Garden
– Many cards of care for members and friends written
– 1 accessible planter constructed
– Cooperation and relationship building achieved between all ages and abilities
– Cheerful adjustments made as we realized that we had a good problem: too many people to keep busy with the tasks we had planned!

Take a look! Thanks to all who participated and supported this effort!

Service Sunday!

We tried a new experiment on May 15th, spending our Sunday morning in service together. Thanks to everyone who helped us:

  • Build 4 cedar planters for the new West Concord Habitat House
  • Assemble 15 kitchen starter kits and collect 20 bags and boxes of other kitchen supplies and linens for Household Goods (!!!)
  • Garden at the Minuteman Arc Pine Street House, adding flowers to beds and window boxes, refilling the bird feeders, repainting a mailbox, and cleaning the porch furniture;
  • Write over 30 notes of care and send advocacy letters to protect those who have been evicted
  • Plant seeds for pollinators and paint kindness rocks
  • Share our stories of service at WCUC and beyond!
