A liberal religious voice in the Central Valley since 1953.
The Social Action Council, in support of the principles and purposes of the Unitarian Universalist Association, actively works on issues of social change of community, national and international concern.
This Council meets quarterly to review the progress of task forces and to support social action projects of the Fellowship, including children's religious education. We also review social concerns of our members and take appropriate actions.
The Council presently consists of the following task forces:
Each task force is responsible to educate not only its own members, but also the Fellowship as a whole, and to take appropriate actions in keeping with the policies of the Fellowship. The Social Action Council is open to all members, and especially encourages those supportive of the current task forces, as well as those desirous of organizing other social change task forces.

The Homeless Service Task Force
We prepare dinner for about 100 people in the Winter Shelter once a month (the second Monday) for six months, November to April. You can help. We can always use extra people to help prepare the meals in the afternoon, or to serve the meals that evening. We need contributions of cash or food. Call Bill Greer and Aynslie Frederickson for details. If you are not a member, call our office at (209) 545-1837, 9 a.m. to noon. Tracy will give you their number.
We collect winter items for families in the winter shelter. UUFSC volunteers sort and organize these items, and deliver them to the shelter on a weekly basis during the winter operating season. You can help there, too. We need donations of warm clothing, socks, underwear, and personal care products - toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, etc.
The task force sponsors one or two raffles a year to fund the food service project.
We support the Church of the Brethren throughout the year when they host homeless families through the "Family Promise" program.
