Volunteer at the Warming Center
There is nothing quite like the feeling of being able to do something concrete and tangible to help our community. Cooking a good meal and sharing it with our guests at the Warming Centers
is now a part of our culture of caring here at the Unitarian Society. We need about 80 volunteers each year to make this happen! I look forward to having you as part of the team! You can sign up here.
