Social Action Sundays

Social Action Sundays (SAS) are held once per month, bringing together congregants for two ongoing, hands-on projects.

1) You can knit or crochet blankets for Project Linus, a national organization that distributes handmade blankets to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. 

2) In partnership with Durham’s Jewish community we provide and serve dinner for over 200 people on the fourth Sunday of each month at Urban Ministries’ Durham Community Kitchen. You can:

  • Make casserole(s) at home and bring to our freezer (see recipe HERE)
  • Donate ingredients for dinner, including casseroles  Sign Up for SAS Dinner Ingredients
  • Join our SAS team making casseroles - sign up HERE.

Want more info? Contact Judy Holland about donating ingredients or serving or Jen Richmond-Bryant for making casseroles at Social Action Sunday. See the Social Action Calendar for upcoming dates


Request for Casseroles & More

Each month, we provide dinner for 200 people at Urban Ministries. More than the 11 casseroles, dinner includes the following, all of which are donated by generous congregants. Be one of them!
Monthy needs for our dinner at the Community Kitchen  
11 large tuna casseroles 
Cookies, any variety - about 400
2 large cans of iced team mix
large bottles of salad dressing - vinaigrette and/or Ranch Dressing - about 3 each
2 large jars of peanut butter
2 large jars of jelly or jam
grated cheese - about 12 cups
If you don't have time to make a casserole, but can drop off some ingredients for the casseroles, they will be used to make them on Social Action Sunday. Please let us know what you plan to bring so we can shop just for what we need by using the SAS Casserole Sign Up Genius
Please deliver casseroles to the freezer and supplies to the pantry in JRC's Weiss Family Kitchen.
Thank you, as always, for your support.
