Social ACTION

United is committed to bringing our principles of service and love into the wider world. For more than 130 years, we have stood for equality, freedom, compassion and justice. Today, we participate and lead a number of efforts in the community in order to serve those around us and make our world a better and more kind place. We hope you will join us in this effort!

Our Social Action Committee meets the third Sunday of every month, following our worship service. Email socialaction@uniteduuc.org to get involved!

Little Lending Library
United it proud of it's "Little Lending Library" outside our church building. Come find a book, learn something new, and leave a favorite for someone else to enjoy. 

Food donations
Our congregation collects food for those struggling with hunger. We partner with the Waukesha Food Pantry which assigns a particular food item for us to donate monthly, although any donations are very much appreciated. A donation bin is in the front hall by the coat rack.

Ongoing Collections
Our congregation holds ongoing collections for food, personal care items, purses and shoes. Baskets can be found in the main entrance way. All food will be donated to the Waukesha Food Pantry and other items are donated to various organizations such as The Hope Center.
