Social Action

Past Projects done before and during the Covid years:

GUUF chose a hands on project to do during the worst of the COVID epidemic. We sectioned off a part of our building and created a small apartment for women in transition to live in. This continues to get regular use.

Also:

  • Regular dinners provided once a month to the Samaritan House homeless center in Kalispell. These dinners continue this year on the first Sunday of each month. More information is available under Service Projects.
  • Habitat For Humanity build projects in Kalispell.

  • We offered assistance to  a young mother and two children and after a difficult year, they are on their own now.

  • We sponsored the Bookmobile, a summer literacy project bringing books and food to children in the Columbia Falls school district.

  • We created welcome kits for refugees arriving in Missoula through Soft Landings Missoula and drove them down there in conjunction with NorthRidge Lutheran Church and the human rights group Love Lives Here.

  • Midyear, we also raised money through the Guest At Your Table program to send to our UU Service Committee nationally in Boston.  

  • We also sent funds to the Unitarian Universalist United Nations office and Betsy and Dan Kohnstamm visited the office in June to talk with theif office interns.   Their office manager will be our guest speaker in March of 2019.
