Each month we dedicate all of our non-pledge income to an organization doing the work that best embodies our Unitarian Universalist principles and values.
For the month of November 2023, we choose the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.
In this month when so many people will celebrate a bounty of food on their tables, we want to extend that possibility to many more in our community who struggle to keep food in the house.
The mission of the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana is to serve as the primary resource for fighting hunger in Northwest Louisiana.
They do this in a number of ways:
- Facilitating distribution of food from multiple centers throughout our community
- Providing most of the food for the weekly Highland Blessing Dinner (helping that event to stretch their budget much further)
Every $10 donated to the food bank can provide $100 worth of food to hungry people — so let’s multiply our power together and give generously.
Two ways to donate:
Online — Go to our donation site using this link. If you are paying your pledge, select “2023 Pledges” and enter that amount for your pledge contribution. Then select “Collection Plate” to give the amount you would like to give to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana and then put “GATP NOV 2023” or “Food Bank of NW Louisiana” in the comment section. All online collection plate contributions for the month of November 2023 will go to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.
Offline — Please send your give away the plate contribution checks to All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, 9449 Ellerbe Road, Shreveport LA 71106. Please put “Food Bank of NW Louisiana” on the memo line of the check if you want to have 100% of your check go to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana. If you want less than 100% of your check to go to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, please put the amount you want going to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana on the memo line.
