Serve Others

Called to Love

We reach beyond our doors to serve members of our community. We provide volunteers and financial support to the following organizations among others:
 

Alternative Christmas Fair 

For the person who has everything:  find gifts for all those hard to shop for names on your list. Donate a goat to the Heifer Project or a hammer to Habitat for Humanity in their name, or purchase jewelry or accessories that support a cause.

Union volunteers prepare a hearty meal for the homeless or food insecure who visit the soup kitchen at Holy Trinity Church in West Orange three Saturdays a year. Contact: Ted O’Dell This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
