Unity in the Community

Are you interested in reaching out and serving the community at large? Unity in the Community, our outreach effort, selects various service projects throughout the year to involve and unite volunteers from Unity of the Triangle. There is “something for everyone” including middle and high school youth. Volunteers may serve one project or many depending on your time and talents.

If you would like to volunteer for an event, please contact Karen Thorsen.

Below is a list of outreach organizations with whom we partner.

THE FOOD BANK OF CENTRAL AND EASTERN NC

Unity of the Triangle has committed to three Saturdays a year to volunteer at the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC.  Sorting through sweet potatoes, apples, or separating meats in the refrigerator room has given us all a new appreciation for those grocery stores in our area that so generously donate food. The three hours seem to race by and give us time to meet other volunteers and share fellowship with them.

BAREFOOT SUNDAY: SOLES 4 SOULS

The floods in West Virginia in the spring of 2016 gave us the chance to reach out to some of the needs of the residents in Clendenin. BAREFOOT SUNDAY, called members of Unity to purchase shoes for the residents as our gift to their recovery. A van loaded with a few hundred pairs of shoes took off for the main distribution center there. It was heart breaking to see the devastation caused and learn of the work to be done to rebuild. The army of volunteers repairing homes, roads, and offering food made our hearts glad to be a part of this mission.

UNDIE SUNDAY (HEALING TRANSITIONS)

For the past two years around Valentine’s Day, Unity has collected items of underwear for the men and women at the two Healing Transitions (formerly Healing Place) programs in Raleigh. Our local campuses have received recognition nationwide for rehabilitating the greatest number of people who needed help in breaking habits of addiction and homelessness. We asked how we could help and were told that so often people offer gloves, hats, and scarves for the winter. No one ever offers underwear and socks. UNDIE SUNDAY this year brought in over 800 items to share with the folks at Healing Transitions, filling the Unity foyer with bras, panties, briefs, socks, and T-Shirts! Truly a Valentine gift from the heart.
