Holiday Outreach Funds
We are delighted to inform you that our two special collections for our traditional holiday outreaches at University Hospital and Pecan Hill Senior apartments were successful and them some! Each event takes about 1,000 dollars annually, to purchase things like food and supplies. This year we collected over $2,200. Any funds that are not spent this year will be set aside for next year.
Unity of SA traditionally reaches out to those who might not have resources to make the holiday special or are in circumstances that make it difficult to celebrate at Thanksgiving and Christmastime.
It’s one of the many ways we live our core values of Loving, Transforming, Empowering, Community, and Welcoming. Unity Church of San Antonio usually provides a luncheon for Thanksgiving for pediatric patients, their families, and University hospital staff on Thanksgiving. Later in the Christmas season, we often host a holiday event for the residents at a nearby senior supported living center. Our Christmas outreach for residents of the Pecan Hill Apartments usually includes a holiday luncheon and caroling, as well as gift bags. The residents of Pecan Hill look forward to this event every year. For some of the residents, it is the only Christmas celebration they will attend.
We appreciate the generosity of our CommUNITY, and look forward to Unity of SA shining its Light in Sacred Service throughout the holiday season. We are absolutely dazzled by the generosity of our CommUNITY!
