At the UU Fellowship of Redwood City, we strive to be good neighbors and helpful friends. We partner or work with many worthy charitable organizations and schools, to further promote their mission. We appreciate our connections with our community and reach out with helping hands.
Distributing Food to Hungry Families
Second Harvest of Silicon Valley relies on volunteers to distribute food to families here in San Mateo County and they need the support of the community more than ever before! Every month we help Second Harvest distribute food at the following neighborhood location:
- Fourth Saturday, 7:15-9:30 AM: Nesbit Elementary School, 500 Biddulph Way, Belmont, CA 94002. (In conjunction with volunteers from the Yaseen Foundation.)
If you would like to volunteer, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Concerned about COVID-19? Most food distributions are outside and often are low/no touch distributions including drive-through distributions. Masks, gloves, and appropriate apparel are required.
Sharing the Plate with Our Neighbors
Each year since 2006, the Social Action Committee solicits nominations for non-profit organizations to which the UU Fellowship will give one week’s Sunday collection. Usually they are local organizations in which one or more of our members is actively involved. After the annual meeting, members and friends choose which groups will receive funds during the upcoming year.
Each month during the year, one of the selected organizations provides a brief presentation during the service and a collection is taken for their cause.
Our UU Fellowship will be supporting the following organizations during FY2022 – 2023. Share-the-Plate dates will be posted soon.
