Pasco County Cold Night Shelter

Branching out to join with other churches, Unity volunteers at the Pasco County Cold Night Shelter. When the temperature is predicted to drop to 36 degrees, the UCC Church in New Port Richey, opens the doors of the church’s fellowship hall.  The homeless in the area are invited to come in out of the cold, enjoy a hot meal and socialize.   Our team of about 8 people is responsible for contributinhg the food, cooking, serving and cleaning up.  Our reward is seeing how grateful the guests are for a warm place to spend the night.

 

Pasco County Stand Down

In partnership with One CommUNITY Now , a network of community churches, our volunteers have worked on the the Annual  Veterans Stand Down event. The program provides all our homeless and “at risk” veterans with resources to get their lives back together and get them back into society.  In addition to linking veterans with services, the day celebrates the contribution these veterans have made to our country!  

 

"Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve.  You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."
