CUCC Receives Environmental Award from the City of Raleigh

In 2016 CUCC was honored to receive the US Foods Environmental Stewardship Award given by the City of Raleigh’s Environmental Advisory Board.  The award acknowledges CUCC’s work from 2007 to 2015 seeking “justice in a changing climate.”

Gary Smith of the JCC task force accepted the award on behalf of the congregation and the many people in the wider community who have joined us over the years in this shared work.  In addition to a certificate, the congregation was given a hand-carved bowl and pedestal made from wood reclaimed in Wake County (the pedestal was formerly a beam from a building in Wake Forest).

We were humbled to be included in the company of the other inspiring 2016 honorees.  (Award Ceremony program)

Special thanks to John Little for writing the application which eloquently describes our desire to be faithful to this justice work to which we feel called by God.  (Application)
