Our Social Action Team is involved in a number of activities. All UUFW members, friends, and visitors are welcome to participate in any of our Social Action events or activities. Below are programs that we volunteer for and sponsor.
CROP Hunger Walk
CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations or groups to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world. We participate in our local walk, held annually in September, to help end poverty. We also take a special collection for this charity and are proud to be among the largest supporters of the CROP Walk in the Waynesboro area.
Food Pantry Collection
We collect food for the Food Pantry at First Presbyterian Church in Waynesboro as an ongoing social action activity. Non-perishable foods can be brought to the fellowship on Sunday mornings and placed in a bin near the entrance.
We prepare and serve a hot meal for those in need of food assistance four times a year at Second Presbyterian Church in Waynesboro as an ongoing social action activity.

Members provide meal transportation for Meals on Wheels in the Staunton area for shut-ins on a regular route each week. The meals are provided by the Meals on Wheels organization in Staunton.
Our team provides a meal for the volunteers who serve in the Staunton Augusta Free Clinic twice per year.
