HANDS AROUND BACK COVE
Hands Around Back Cove was a family-friendly peaceful gathering to honor our community, the values of equality and acceptance we stand for, and our resilience as a nation.
The circle represented love and hope for the future, helping our diverse community to heal from the presidential election in a peaceful show of solidarity. Many of our members participated!
Many of our members walked in the Pride Parade this year.

Preble Street Soup Kitchen
We and First Parish UU Church commit ourselves to prepare and serve dinner to well over 400 clients on the fourth Tuesday of every month at the Preble Street Soup Kitchen at 252 Oxford Street, Portland. We help prepare the food, serve the food and clean up from 3:30 until 6:30 pm. Please see our web page for more information. In 2016 we received recognition as faith-based support by Preble Street.
Project Feed is a food pantry housed in Woodfords UCC Church. A number of our members volunteer at the pantry, including the volunteer coordinator and the treasurer. Every week we contribute non-perishable food to the pantry, which can be left in the basket in the foyer of Allen Avenue. Financial contributions and reusable bags are also welcome. Please see the pantry web page for more information!
