Undie Sundays – Donations requested Nov 17 – Dec 5, 2021

Every year UUCPA collects NEW underwear, socks, gloves, and such for the Opportunity Center’s Holiday Shoppe.  Even in the middle of a pandemic, there are still people without stable housing, and they still need underwear, among other things.  This year Undie Sunday will run from Nov 17 to Dec 5, 2021.
