Current Projects

October

Each night in the United States, an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October, the national goal is to get 2 million people to show that even a small act of love, such as donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless. Unity of Wilmington is going to be a part of those 2 million generous contributors!  Please participate with us by bringing in socks!

 

Ongoing Projects:

Collection of Box Tops for Education—  We collect the Box Tops for Education coupons found on many General Mills products.  Roland-Grise Middle School PTA receives ten cents for each box top.  A jar is located on the foyer table for the coupons.  We have donated $170 in box tops to date.
