FIRST TUESDAY HOMELESS MEALS OUTREACH – has drawn to a close but not before serving four meals to 280 men and women directly and 200 men, women and children indirectly since its inception last November. This monthly outreach during the winter is a win/win project: UCC serves our food to people at the Men’s Winter Overflow Shelter and anything not used finds its way to locations for others in need to enjoy. Nothing is wasted. Your support of the Homeless Meal project helps us define who we are. Looking back on the success of this project, we know that UCC cares for Wichitans in need. Thank you to each and all.
