Evergreen Projects Ministry Team
Evergreen is the umbrella title for several service projects at Unity Church-Unitarian.
Food Ministry at the Jeremiah Program
At the present time Unity Church members prepare and serve monthly meals for families at the Jeremiah Program residence at 932 Concordia Avenue in St. Paul. The Jeremiah Program gives single mothers and their children the opportunity to fully unleash their potential and build a vibrant future. Jeremiah provides a holistic support system for women of high-potential seeking higher education, including affordable housing, Life Skills education, empowerment training and early childhood education for their children. Jeremiah Program’s innovative approach prepares women to succeed n the workforce, readies their children to succeed in kindergarten and reduces general dependence on public assistance.
Evergreen Quilters is a group of twenty-five members and friends of Unity Church–Unitarian who quilt or want to learn how to quilt, and who love to share their creativity and skills with each other and the wider community. Their creative work is displayed at church, shared with in celebration of new babies, donated to families at the Family Place (a day shelter in downtown St. Paul), and sold in Parish Hall each year. Proceeds from the sale are shared with Sharing Korner Food shelf, the Jeremiah Program, and the Family Place. All people of the church are welcome to join the group at any time. For information please contact Peggy Wright at 651-698-2760.
Currently the Evergreen projects are staffed by a core group of dedicated volunteers doing direct service; the quilters provide a larger venue for volunteer opportunities. Contact Lisa Friedman f by email at email@example.com or by phone at 651-228-1456 x107 for more information.
Food Shelf Collection
Food Shelf collection returns to Unity Church!
Unity's Evergreen Quilters are now supporting the Hallie Q. Brown Food Shelf at 270 Kent Street in St. Paul.
May Collection: Hygiene Items
Think of oral, personal, and pet hygiene items when bringing donations for the Hallie Q. Brown Food Shelf to Unity Church during the month of May.
Donations of tooth brushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, dish and laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, baby oil, and diapers. And don't forget pet hygiene! Look for the wicker collection trunks, with quilted food shelf signs, located near the Holly and Portland Avenue entrances.
Hallie Q. Brown Community Center Food Shelf provides non-perishable foods plus fresh produce, hygiene, baby and pet products to those in need in our church neighborhood. Evergreen Quilters encourages Unity Church members and friends to contribute throughout the year. If you don't have hygiene items, bring a can of soup!
