The Giving Tree

I’m reaching out to all employees who haven’t yet participated in our annual Giving Tree Program, where we brighten 100’s of local families during the holiday season!
As of today we have 15 families left with a total of 79 children that still need to be adopted.
We also have 13 families asking for food/toiletries ONLY.
IF you and/or your office would like to adopt one of these families please reach out to me by Tuesday afternoon.

Gift drop off December 8th 10 am to 12 pm Hunt Union Ballroom.

Thank you in advance,
Anne Winchester

Volunteers Needed for UUP at Saturday’s Bread — Saturday, December 2, 2017

· On Saturday, December 2, 2017, UUP Oneonta will once again staff Saturday’s Bread, a community kitchen that dispenses hot meals and good cheer. Linda Drake, Director, Center of Social Responsibility and Community, will, as previously, co-ordinate UUP Oneonta’s participation in this worthwhile community service. Although Saturday’s Bread is housed at the First United Methodist Church, 66 Chestnut Street, Oneonta, the program is a non-denominational and humanitarian service open to all. To be part of the volunteer group at Saturday’s Bread on December 2, you must be willing to work from 9:30 AM to 2 PM. As we need an exact list of the names and numbers of participants, please e-mail Linda Drake at to volunteer. When you contact Linda, please provide her with your full name, e-mail, and telephone number.

Please join us for a “UUP Coffee Social” on Thursday, November 30th in the Butternut Valley Room, Hunt Union, from 4-5:30 PM. UUP attendees will receive a Starbucks coupon redeemable for a beverage and pastry. It’s ok to come late and leave early. This is an informal event without formal agenda or speeches. It is an opportunity to let UUP officers know what you are thinking and to dialogue and get questions answered amidst fellowship and refreshment. This gathering will seed the groundwork for the solidarity needed as face challenges ahead.
