Thanks to all the folks who brought winter clothes to UUCP last Sunday. We collected 10 big bags of winter clothes, plus 3 bags of other items. We took all of it to the Welcome Center on Monday morning, and within two hours, it was almost all given to grateful asylum-seekers heading for cold climates. We will be in the upper UUCP parking lot again on January 16 from noon to 2pm, collecting any other winter clothes, T-shirts (sizes S and M) and shoes that you no longer need. Hope to see you there!
Buying much-needed items from the Welcome Center Amazon wish list is another way to contribute. Thank you!
The AZ Legislative session begins on Monday, January 10. We need to be aware of the impact of bills under consideration, including crucial ones on voting rights.
