July's Care & Share - "Clothing - A Basic Need" 👕

Our Social Action Team is sponsoring a service opportunity here at Unity Santa Fe, called Care and Share, as a way of blessing others in our local Santa Fe community.

By talking with local social service organizations, we've learned what some of the greatest needs are in our community.

Each month, we are highlighting one specific need and offering the opportunity for you to donate items to fill that need.  

For many people without homes, it's hard to get a job or take any steps to improve their lives if they don't have any decent clothes to wear.  Bienvenidos is best known for distributing food to the people who need it most, but they also run a FREE thrift shop, giving clothing and household items to anyone who needs them.  When asked what kinds of items they need most, they emphatically said Men's Clothes.  So, for our July Care & Share program, please bring any and all kinds of men's clothes to fill up our donation box.  Underpants and socks should be new, but all other clothing can be gently used.  Clean out your closets or shop the thrift stores and share our Unity Love with our neighbors.

Bienvenidos Outreach, originally founded by Beatrice Nevares, opened its doors in 1989, serving the homeless population. Then in 2008 Susan Tarver took over as Director and is currently in this position to this day.   As the issue of hunger in New Mexico continued to grow, the food pantry expanded it operations in 1996 to include food boxes for those who needed help but were not homeless. Food donations from local private donors, churches, supermarkets and the Food Depot have enabled us since the beginning to further our mission to help those in need in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. The Holiday Gift Program for Children is one of our most popular and heart-warming undertakings.  Families on the food box program with children 12 and under apply and fill out “wish lists” for each registered child.  We give these lists to numerous local churches and community organizations, and they then buy a toy and clothing item for each child.  Santa and his firefighter helpers arrive on a fire truck with the wrapped gifts and hand out the presents to the excited children. In December 2022 we organized the giving of 770 gifts to 395 children

Bring your donations to church on Sundays! 

Care & Share is brought to you by your Community Action Team.  Thank You for your loving generosity!
