Ways You Can Help
Helpers for First U
We are inundated with offers of help and caring in these stressful times! We have close to 30 individuals ready and willing to help with deliveries, calls, greeting cards and even an offer to provide humorous online conversations!
What we need now is to know who would like help and to identify those in need. If you are a member or friend of First Unitarian Church:
Would you appreciate a phone call just to chat or for a brief check in? Are your supplies running low and you don't have transportation? Are you just feeling stressed and would like to hear from another member?
We can help you with all of this, just please reach out to MTC@firstuuomaha.org and we will contact you.
If you are someone who wants to sign up to help others, please email MTC@firstuuomaha.org.
**Please understand that even with our volunteers stepping up, we cannot respond to urgent needs.
We have so much to be grateful for in our loving and caring church community. We can get through this and so much more together. Thank you.
