Our members and friends are involved in service all over the city. We have people who are working on health care reform, people who volunteer to hand out sandwiches to the homeless, people who are dedicated to environmental justice and Black Lives Matter, people who volunteer to teach literacy and comprehensive sexuality education, people who help run gender and sexuality alliances in local schools and who support the work of Interfaith Works in helping new Americans get settled. Our members and friends are in the community making a difference every day.
In the past our children have raised money for disaster relief, have collected over 400 children’s books to donate to a food pantry, collected socks for homeless, and provided Christmas gifts to a new refugee family, made blankets for elderly, created cards to support LGBTQ youth and so many other projects.
Our high school teen group has participated in many service trips including West Virginia where we provided people power for construction on housing for low income people and learned about class and poverty in Appalachia, a week long muntigenerational trip to Haiti where we worked with local environmental organizations and helped to build a house in an eco village, Long Island to help with post Sandy hurricane damage and more.
