Outreach

To inspire and foster spiritual growth in one another and in the community.

Unity Center of Reno prides itself in our strong commitment to serving our community in partnering with local organizations that support others that are less fortunate. Throughout the year we organize to raise funds and collect goods to help meet those needs.

Reaching out to the community and serving others inspires spiritual growth in those that are serving as well as receiving. As we foster love in action this often brings a new awareness, healing within, and a purpose to our lives.

Unity Center’s Outreach program meets the first Sunday of each month after Sunday service. If you would love to serve in this program and have ideas on how to serve contact Barbara Williamson at 775-857-1478 or barbbw@charter.net

Unity Center in Partnership with the Karma Box Project Ongoing Project

What is Karma Box Project?
It’s a community initiative that allows people to give non-perishable food and other useful items to those in need. We are accepting individually wrapped snack bars, tuna packets or cans with pull up tops.

How does it work?
Karma boxes are filled up with goods by anyone who wants to lend a helping hand to those in need.

If you’re hungry or need some supplies find the Karma Box location closest to you using this app .
If you want to lend a helping hand, find a Karma Box location near you and donate anything you can spare.

If it’s empty, fill it. If you need it it’s yours. Unity Center’s Karma box is at 2207 Kings Row, Reno, NV

The St. Vincent’s Food Pantry is the largest food pantry in northern Nevada, serving more than 15,000 people each month. They offer non-perishable, canned, and packaged food products to individuals and families in need at no cost.
