Innovative Ways to Collect Donations
The First UU Church of Niagara in Niagara Falls, New York made local news with their holiday food drive. The small but active congregation used the controversy about divisive border walls to create a different narrative. They took up a collection of canned and other non-perishables and created a wall of food for those in need in the local community. President Betsy Diachun shared about how they partner with local missions to get the food to those who need it most.
This is not the first time First UU of Niagara has built a structure out of donations. Last year they created a tree out of packages of toilet paper that they then donated to local charities.
