NORTH HILLS COMMUNITY OUTREACH INC
February 14, 2011
NHCO is the recipient of a number of my congregation's efforts in Faith in Action. Because we Unitarian Universalists (UUs) believe in the inherient worth and dignity of every person, we are active in community service and social action. NHCO is one of our chosen vehicles for living our beliefs. Many community causes ask for our help, compete for our volunteer time and we do contribute both to others, however, as an institution the Unitarian Universalist Church of the North Hills feels a strong community partnership with NHCO. We collect food for the pantry, wrap Christmas gifts at retailers, serve in the Oakmont concession stands of the Women's Open, donate our own classrooms for Open Your Heart to a Senior training, donate money to be used at our Bellwood Kids' Stuff Sale, donate baskets to Spring Share and Backpacks to Back to School projects.
In short we find that a portion of our mission and vision is realized by working with NHCO to help those in our larger community.
I hope that you and your group will join with us in this worthwhile enterprise. Thanks to you all. Lou Bartolomucci, President of the Board, UUCNH
