Community Outreach

helpinghandsThe Mission of the Community Outreach Committee is to promote Unitarian Universalist values by leading the UUCOV congregation in social service outreach to the local community. We do this by:

      • Educating the congregation about social service needs in the local community,
      • Communicating social service volunteer opportunities to the congregation,
      • Coordinating congregational social service projects,
      • Working in collaboration with Interfaith Outreach, Inc., and other community organizations to serve local social service needs,
      • Raising funds for local social service needs.

Our current activities focus on improving the lives of children and adults in South Sarasota County who are homeless, hungry, or economically deprived.

Many Thanks, and…

Because Sarasota County did not have the Giving Challenge this summer, Family Promise of South Sarasota County (SSCFP) did not receive muchDream walk needed funds (last year FPSSC received approximately $45,000). This was funding they had hoped to receive again to see them through the year. How are they compensating? Their answer is to have their own fundraiser – a November 11th Dream Walk!
Your generosity in giving of your time and money to Family Promise families is beautiful and we at UUCOV and VUCC have already raised over $7200. Now, let’s give a little more. Cindy O’Dell has created a team, the ‘U-Knights’! (You know, unite!) on the FP Dream Walk website! And UUCOV and VUCC have joined forces to provide a walking team for this event. Registration for the team and/or donating is very easy! Go to the website familypromisessc.org and click on the header ‘Dream Walk’! and add yourself as a walker or, if you are not walking, send donations to any member of our team.
