On Saturday, March 16, 2019, UUP Oneonta will once again staff Saturday’s Bread, a community kitchen that dispenses hot meals and good cheer. Linda Drake will, as previously, coordinate our chapter’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 March 16, you must be willing to work from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. As we need an exact list of the names and numbers of participants, please email Linda Drake at Linda.Drake@oneonta.edu to volunteer. When you contact Linda, please provide her with your full name, e-mail, and telephone number.
Kudos to Linda, the College at Oneonta’s Executive Director of the Center for Social Responsibility and UUP’s Director of Community Service, for continuing to facilitate the involvement of volunteers in a variety of benevolent enterprises. UUP Oneonta has participated in flood relief in our region, post-Katrina reconstruction in the Gulf, collection drives, Habitat for Humanity, and other volunteerism under Linda’s leadership. UUP is proud to staff this current Saturday’s Bread endeavor. Service is central to our union mission.
