What You Can Do for Justice

Community BoardJoin us to create compassionate justice grounded in spiritual community! Here’s some of what you can do: Put together weekly meals for the street homeless. Make and serve a monthly dinner at a local men’s shelter. Advocate for things like public transportation and against things like gun violence. Bring a food donation on Sundays. Place some money in our Sunday collection plate which we’ll share with a worthy justice partner.

If you’re looking for ways to get involved, share your gifts, and serve the common good; you’ve come to the right place. Here are some specific opportunities to get involved. Our Justice League coordinates our justice work, contact them at <justice at alleghenyuu.org>.

 

 

Raise Money While You Shop with Giant Eagle Cards

Posted by on Nov 24, 2012 in Justice Opportunities | Comments Off on Raise Money While You Shop with Giant Eagle Cards

Raise money for Allegheny UU Church while you shop at Giant Eagle. Order cards  in $100, $50, $10 increments.  The cards can be used for anything that you purchase at Giant Eagle or GetGo. You can buy groceries, prescriptions, gasoline and, you can purchase any of the gift cards (Best Buy, Kohl’s, etc.) carried by Giant Eagle. They are a perfect gift for any occasion — birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and other important celebrations! (How about for Teachers?) Giant Eagle cards work like cash. You get the full value of your money, and Giant Eagle contributes 5% to Allegheny. See Betty Schwarz for more information or to place an order.

Jobs and the Clean Rivers Campaign: ALCOSAN has proposed and plans to implement a multi-billion dollar fix to the sewer system. PIIN, as part of the Clean Rivers Coalition, wants this, the largest infrastructure investment in Allegheny County’s history, to do the maximum good in the community. We are pushing for good jobs, for green methods to help solve the storm water problem, and provide benefits to our communities and for strategies to reduce flooding.

Voter ID and Turnout: Civic participation is a cherished value of each of the faith traditions represented in PIIN and we will put it into action by encouraging and protecting the vote this November.

Are your batteries dead? (Not figuratively. Literally.) They don’t go in recycle and shouldn’t be thrown in the trash. Green Sanctuary has a bin in Founders Hall for you to bring your old batteries and electronics.
