With the support of Weavers Way Outreach Coordinator Bettina de Caumette and Co-op staff, members and shoppers, the Unitarian Universalist Outreach Program collected and distributed about 175 bags of groceries to 98 older adults living in the Northwest. Volunteer cooperators put in 19 hours’ worth of sorting, bagging and delivering groceries. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Weavers Way with the hope that next year will be even bigger.

On behalf of our grateful elderly clients, the staff of UUH Outreach thanks Weavers Way Mt. Airy. For more information about the Outreach Program, please visit our website at
