Unity Shoppe Celebrating 100 Years of Community Service

As Unity celebrates their 100 year anniversary, a “Yesterday ~ Today and Tomorrow” theme will showcase those businesses and individuals of all ages and backgrounds that have created a remarkable community effort.

Kenny Loggins will be one of the hosts for a CommUnity Birthday Show at the Granada Theatre on Wednesday September 7th from 7:30-9:30pm. Tickets are available beginning
August 1st at the Granada box office 805.899.2222 or online at http://granadasb.org

Today, the Unity Shoppe provides eight year-round programs that serve nearly 20,000 low-income clients, providing an immediate, efficient method to distribute food along with work and school clothing, and school supplies. Many low-income, hard-working people are referred to the Unity Shoppe as the result of the loss of a job, or an illness of a parent or child that impacts the fragile family finances. These qualified people are referred by over 300 other non-profit agencies, schools, hospitals, and churches.

In addition, Unity’s job training program, long-term disaster relief, and volunteer/internship opportunities help families recover, find better-paying jobs, and move beyond the need for assistance. The end result of all these services is that our entire community is more stable and secure.

The Unity Shoppe is a 501 (c)(3) Public Benefit Corporation that encourages self-sufficiency and independence by providing education and the necessities of life to families, children, seniors and persons with disabilities during periodic times of crisis. These necessities are provided, at no charge, in a dignified manner without regard to political affiliation, religious belief or ethnic identity.
