JULY 18 AND 19

Save the dates and donate some good stuff!!! As a fundraiser for our fellowship, we will be participating in the Hornell city-wide yard sales on Friday and Saturday July 18 and 19 at our HAUUS location at 198 Main St. Drop off for donated items for the sale is Thursday evening (7/17) from 6-8pm and Friday morning. It would be helpful if you would price your items before you bring them to 198 Main. We will also need volunteers to work a few hours at the sale.

HAUUS members continue to support local food pantries. Please bring non-perishable food items when you come to fellowship.
