Update and Meals Needed – Heart and Home Women’s Shelter

Hello Everyone – Heart and Home is delaying their arrival at UUCPA until Sunday March 19, with caution about our current plumbing challenges. Big thanks to First Presbyterian for letting Heart and Home stay for 2 extra weeks!

But – Heart and Home needs some dinners – starting soon! 

Through March 18, those dinners need to be delivered to First Presbyterian Church at 1140 Cowper St, Palo Alto, CA 94301. After March 18, the dinners can be delivered to UUCPA.

There is a parking lot off of Lincoln, or it also seems easy to park on Cowper in front of the church, and bring your dinner into the middle of campus to the social hall where Heart and Home is staying. 

Here is the link to see open dates to bring a meal – and also other ways to help like doing  laundry. This Friday and Saturday dinners are open! Deliver a hot dinner for 10 at 6:15. Menu suggestions at end of this email. 

Thanks for helping Heart and Home!
