Social Justice Sunday: Hunger

This Sunday grades 1-5 will have a children's chapel dedicated to the issue of hunger. There will also be a social action project they can participate in following their chapel time that is in collaboration with the Social Action Council at UUSS.

Hunger and food insecurity is a serious issue in our Schenectady community. One of the ways faith-based groups such as ourselves rally together and raise money for programs designed to end hunger is through the annual CROP walk. This year's walk is May 4 and leave from nearby Emmanuel- Friedens Church.

This Sunday, children will hear from one RE child who has taken up the issue of hunger and will be participating in this year's CROP walk.
