Its main project is the “Continuing Bazaar” thrift store located in First Unitarian’s Gore Hall. You may shop Tuesdays during the Alliance meeting and Sundays after the service. We also hold a Christmas Boutique each December and a Yard Sale each spring.
Proceeds from the store go to local charities that the Alliance supports.
The Alliance meets each Tuesday from 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM in Gore Hall to sort donated items and plan activities. (The meeting-at-large is at Noon.) Our general pattern is
1st Tuesday of the month the Alliance Board meets in the library before the meeting at large.
2nd Tuesday is potluck lunch or we make plans to dine out. (The rest of the time is BYO.)
3rd Tuesdays we gather in the kitchen first thing in the morning to make sandwiches for the homeless.
4th Tuesdays and 5th Tuesdays may have a speaker of note.
Of course, each month things may vary slightly. Please check the current monthly Alliance article below for schedule details.
Most of our members are from both First Unitarian and University Unitarian but you do not have to be a church member to join. Everyone of all ages is welcome to join in body or spirit. Some are able to come each Tuesday to sort each week. Some only can come out to help with the special rummage sales each semester. Others are not able to come, but still send their annual membership dues in support of the Alliance’s work. See our treasurer for dues information.
