UU Asheville members and friends have stepped up to adopt our Charlotte Street BeLoved Street Pantry!  We now have a Charlotte Street Pantry Google Group that we have been using to easily communicate with each other. If you are an Adopter or a Sustainer you should be receiving emails from Charlotte Street Pantry. If you are not yet a member of the Google Group, but would like to keep informed about what is needed at the pantry, please email Anita at

There are still a few 5th days of the months available to adopt! (meaning you would only need to fill the pantry 4 or 5 days a year). Schedule now at !

Donations most needed, to be delivered to the bin at the back entrance to UU, are pop top cans of full meals and small bottles of water that will fit in the pantry. Thank you!! We are helping our neighbors!!

Here are more instructions and tips for Adopters.

Here are three other ways to volunteer in addition to becoming an Adopter:

Be a Random Filler: visit the Charlotte Pantry whenever convenient to check on it and fill it up.

Be a Random Donor: Donate items or even ask neighbors and friends to donate too. Deliver to the UU bin when convenient.
