Unitarian members to satisfy appetites, help fire victims

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

When fires ravaged through southern California last year, many members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Los Alamos understood the fire victims’ situation because they had experienced a similar situation themselves.

Sherry Hardage of the Unitarian Church explained about seven people in the congregation had lost their homes during the Cerro Grande Fire so they felt compelled to extend help to California.

Help will come in the form of a soup and bread lunch fundraiser. After church services on Sunday, which will be at about 12:15 p.m., members of the church will serve donated homemade bread and soups. The cost of the lunch is $3 for adults and $1.50 for children younger than age 12.

Proceeds from the lunch will go toward the Unitarian Church in Santa Barbara.

Hardage said the soup and bread lunch fundraiser is a common fundraiser at the church.

“We do soup and bread lunches a lot,” she said, “and we raise about $400-500.”

It may not be a huge amount, but Hardage pointed out, “Every little bit helps.”

Helping the fire victims in southern California is just one cause  the church is helping.
