Heights Emergency Food Center ~ Annual Campaign

Renaissance Unity participates in an annual campaign to collect food, household goods (cleaning supplies/personal hygiene products/diapers) and monetary donations for the Heights Emergency Food Center, which is a non-profit corporation staffed by volunteers to provide for people in emergency situations. Committed to Judeo-Christian principles, the center respects social and cultural diversity and upholds the worth and dignity of those it serves.

Our campaign dates this year are Sunday, November 18 through Sunday, December 16. Please continue reading to see how you can contribute:
