Community Service

First UCC partners with several local organizations, providing monetary and material support for their work to serve those in need. Read more below about the organizations we support and how you can get involved.

Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is a program that brings meals to elders and other home-bound individuals. First UCC takes responsibility for filling four weeks of Meals on Wheels food delivery each year.

We are not looking for any volunteers at this moment.

Community Action Center

The Community Action Center meets the needs of those in our community who are seeking help from everything to housing to food access. In addition to providing monetary gifts and support for the CAC’s new affordable housing project, Hillcrest Village, First UCC collects food for the CAC’s food shelf. Members of First UCC also frequently volunteer at the CAC. Sign up to volunteer here.

Ruth’s House

Ruth’s House provides transitional and permanent housing for women and children in crisis. First UCC gathers donations for Ruth’s House. Check out their current needs list, or sign up to volunteer.

Habitat for Humanity

Our members join with other community members in helping to build homes through Habitat for Humanity. We also provide meals for workers when crews aren’t available. Click here for more information about Rice County’s Habitat for Humanity.
