First Parish Delivers 55 Gift Baskets to the UU Urban Ministry

behany-house-gift-bags-2016In conjunction with the highly successful annual FP Holiday Workshop held this past December 3rd, our Social Action Committee made and delivered 55 holiday gift bags to women residents of the UU Urban Ministry transitional housing program and mothers of the Roxbury Youth Program. The project was led by Brenda Prusak. Dori Reuss, Dep Lapides, Jane Beswick, and Elaine Hylek. Items included in the bags were small lotion bottles, glitter markers, small notebooks, sanitizers, a handmade greeting card, tissue packets, socks, and a gift card to Dunkin’ Donuts. The bags were topped off with Deb’s cookie box (including her cookies plus those donated by Jane and the Youth Group). The UUUM and the women were thrilled with the gifts.
