Clothes for the Needy

UUCJ will begin collecting clothes and shoes for the needy by joining forces with St. Paul’s Methodist church at 8264 Lone Star Road, where their volunteers staff a separate building on their premises (The Clothing Closet), and those in need can shop for items. People can come every Tuesday from 1-4 pm and make selections, which are free of charge. We will participate by placing a clothes hamper in the social hall, where you can place used items you wish to give away. Donna Janesky will periodically empty the hamper and take the items to St. Paul’s for distribution. So – clean out those closets! And thank you for your participation.

Arlington Community Food Bank needs Food

The Arlington Community Services (ACS) food bank is always in need of more food to distribute to Arlington residents in need. We challenge our members to each bring a can a week to the church. The donations are collected in a bin and on shelves located outside the Sanctuary doors on Sunday mornings, so you can easily leave your donations as you enter the service. The list of needed items is as follows:

  • canned meats
  • dry beans
  • green peas
  • cookies
  • cold cereal
  • dry milk packets
  • pork and beans
  • snacks/crackers
  • soup
  • jelly
  • plain rice
  • toothpaste
