Radical Hospitality on the Heels of Radical Generosity

First Unitarian Church of Wilmington is the birthplace of the Independent Living for Young Adults (ILYA) social justice program. Since its beginnings, members and friends of the church have been very generous supporters allowing early volunteers like Betty Wier, Barbara Crowell, Barbara Perry, J. Harry Feldman, Henrietta McKelvey and many others since to make significant changes in the lives of young people aging out of foster care in New Castle County Delaware.
On Sunday, February 10th, some of the young people you support will be coming to participate in the service and to talk with us during coffee hour afterwards. We hope you will ask them about their goals, where they are going to school or are working (or both for many). You may find you have interests in common. Let’s show our radical hospitality to our young friends.
And of course, we ask you to continue your radical generosity in helping to support them. By digging deep in our pockets we fund a strong step up for these youth. You can contribute in the offering during the service, send a check to the church with “ILYA” on the memo line or use the GivePlus+ app on your smart phone. As always, the ILYA team thanks you for your support.
