In this season of giving, sharing and being thankful, we suggest that you consider contributing to the efforts of the organizations which, through caravans, are caring for the many being “housed” on both sides of the Sonora/Arizona border.  It is through the caring of these volunteers that we show our humanity and say “welcome.”  Bring donations to GPUUC, M-F, 9-12AM or during services hours. For more information,  write to    Many thanks.  María-Elena
