Help Our Youth Help Others!

Our Senior High Youth Group needs your raw walnuts!! Please bring walnuts from your yard or anywhere else you have permission and place them in the collecting bins in our parking lot.

Bring donated walnuts to UUI through September and October.

We will take them to a company who will pay us and then process them for food.

This is a super fun and meaningful trip! We work together on the job site all day, then we do fun things in the evenings. We shop for our own groceries and make our own meals.
