“Holiday Cards for Prison” Outreach, November 19 & 26, after service

Over 300 members of the UUA are incarcerated, waiting for pen pals on the outside. Stop by the gallery table on November 19 and 26 to sign a card (or more than one)! Your holiday wishes will be treasured by a person with inherent dignity and worth, who is cut off from friends and family. Because of the specific requirements of prisons for the mail they receive, please use only the cards and pens provided for this purpose. Ask a member of the group of five if you have questions about the project – Edith Helbert, Ruth deWtt, Chris Tennant, Rachel Blakeman, Jessica Marquart.
