You will find UU’s serving these organizations:
- Cancer Support Community
We organized Friends of Gilda, which is working to establish a Cancer Support Community in the Greenville, NC area. We will
have Gilda’s Clubhouse, with a warm, welcoming environment and a program of social and emotional support for men, women, and children who have cancer, their
families, and their close friends. Our mission will be to ensure men, women, and children touched by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action,
and sustained by community. Our innovative program will be an essential complement to medical care- providing networking and support groups, workshops, education,
and social activities. For more information contact Betty Greer email@example.com.
- Greenville Community Shelter Action Group
The "Shelter Action Group" is aimed at developing projects that directly help the Greenville Community Shelter pursue its goals of helping those who have become
homeless. Current projects include donations by UUCG members to the Shelter's "Daily Needs", critical items needed for Shelter daily life. Next is the work of UUCG
volunteers to help with the daily process of residents' evening "check-in" at the facility. Our third helping choice is to select certain events for recognition of
suitable residents. For example, for 2011 Mothers' Day we provided a rose and personalized card for each woman resident. The plan is to continue these initiatives
and add to the program where feasible.
