Special Events

Night of Unity

Tuesday, February 27 — 6:00 pm at Pleasant Valley High School, Brodheadsville. 

For many years now, Gloria Finch has coordinated UUFP’s presence at this wonderful event which brings together a diverse group of community organizations.  There are dance performances, foods from all nations and a great chance to interact with our wonderful community and present UUFP as a part of the Poconos community.

Volunteers are needed to set up, staff the table, make cultural cuisine, and break down.  If you can help, please contact Gloria at gfinch@ptd.net.

Volunteers Needed for the Community Meal

This is a great way for UUFP to reach out and help the Stroudsburg Community to which we belong.  Please see the details below:

What started out as the “soup kitchen,” is now often called the “community meal.”  It is not just soup but a full meal is prepared and served to anyone who comes.  This was started at the Stroudsburg United Methodist Church at least 25 years ago.  A schedule is drawn up and various groups sign up for a Sunday of their choosing. A “group” is usually about 5 people.  Someone in the group will coordinate the meal:  decide what will be prepared, arrange for the food and volunteers. Most groups bring their own food.

Volunteers arrive around 2:00 pm on Sundays and begin their prep. Doors open at 4:00 pm. The number of people is served is about 50-60. The participants are usually very appreciative and really depend on this meal.

Please contact Barbara Harteis at Barbee_h51@yahoo.com if you would like to volunteer and plan a meal.

Family Promise: Volunteers Need in January and February

Hello Volunteers,

Something a bit different is being asked of us from Family Promise. We are being asked to provide a meal or part of a meal for the times the families are not in a church, but a retreat site (Kirkwood Camp and Retreat, 127 Kirkwood Rd., Stroudsburg, PA).  The families will be at the retreat January 14 – 21 and February 4 – 25.

The good thing is, we can drop the food off at the day center or take to the site. Please let me know if you can help out and the date. We won’t know the family particulars until the time gets closer.

Thanks for all you do.
