Ongoing Social Action Efforts

The Community Support Center (CSC) helps people in danger of eviction stay in their homes. Pilgrim House participates in the Walk a Thousand Miles for Our Neighbors fundraiser supporting the CSC held in July at Silver View Park in Mounds View. Pilgrim House currently has a member on the CSC board.

PH also participates in the local Social Concerns Network meetings and in the Social Concerns Network winter clothing drive in the fall.

Pilgrim House supports the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf in Mounds View with donations and individual volunteers. We also encourage donations of checks at Pilgrim House. There is a donation box in the entry.

Pilgrim House supports Alexandra House. We participate in the annual HopeFest (formerly known as Walk for Hope) at the end of September.

Pilgrim House members often attend the annual Hope Gala fundraiser in March.

Pilgrim House is currently looking at supporting affordable housing through efforts like the Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative.

The Minnesota UU Social Justice Alliance coordinates regional social justice activities such as UU participation in the Pride Celebration.

Side With Love is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association and is a public advocacy campaign “that seeks to harness love’s power to stop oppression.”
