The Alliance is group of (mostly) women and some men from First Unitarian Church of Orlando (1U) and the Unitarian Unitarian Universalist Society (UUUs) that meet weekly for the following purposes:
It is our oldest group and has been in existence almost as long as First Unitarian itself!
Its main project is the “Continuing Bazaar” ReSale Shop, located in a small room off First Unitarian’s Gore Hall Library. You can shop Tuesdays during the Alliance meeting and Sundays after the worship service. The Alliance also holds a Christmas Boutique each December.
Proceeds from the store go to local charities that the Alliance supports. Due to your generous donations of merchandise, time, and money, we were able to award $500 to New Image Youth Center in August. We are impressed with the work they do on a small budget on behalf of youth in the Parramore area of Orlando.
The Alliance meets Tuesdays from 10:30 am until 1:00 pm in Gore Hall, except on occasions when they dine out. Bring along a bag lunch; drinks are provided. There are often featured speakers or special programs. Details of the next meeting are published in the Weekly Update, also know as the eblast.
Most of our members come from both the First Unitarian Church and the University Unitarian Universalist Society, but you do not have to be a church member to join. People of all ages are welcome to join in body or spirit. Some are able to come each Tuesday; others come occasionally. Others are not able to come at all, but still send their annual membership dues in support of the Alliance’s work. See our Treasurer for dues information.
