Social Action and Missions

Bloom’s Social Action and Missions Ministry encourages and empowers us to be active agents of change in our community when needs arise and to be vocal advocates for social justice when voices need to be heard.

Programs Include:

Hot Lunch Service: Alleviating hunger in our community by supplying volunteers to help Well in the Desert serve hot lunches twice a week and collecting weekly food donations for the FIND food bank.

Buddy and Lucy Bags: Helping our homeless neighbors feed their pet companions, an often-overlooked hardship of homelessness.

Backpack and School Supplies Drive: Buying and filling backpacks and supplies to help area children be better prepared for their school year.

Holiday Gift Cards: Coordinating with area school principals to supply shopping gift cards for needy Valley families during the holiday.

Asylum Seeker Support: Providing clothing and needed supplies for families seeking asylum as they navigate through the immigration process. This Ministry supports the ongoing efforts of Our Lady of Soledad in Coachella, CA. It is part of the church’s 2019 focus on the Social Justice issues of Immigration.

Spring Up for Bloom 2022: “SPRING UP FOR BLOOM!” was an online, on-demand, day of giving experience on Friday, March 11th, 2022, that supported the presence and work in our valley and online of Bloom in the Desert Ministries, United Church of Christ.
