Peace Community Center’s Community Meals Program has provided free dinners for the community every October and April since 1987. Starting at 5:30 p.m. dinner is served by a local church group who has volunteered to cook and serve the meal for that night at the Center. Many of UPPC’s small groups have found it to be a great opportunity to serve together. If you are interested in getting involved, please email Kerri at Peace Community Center.
Did you know that Peace Community Center also provides educational support for youth in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma?
Their after-school tutoring program expanded in 2003 to include high school, post high-school, middle school students at Jason Lee, and elementary students at McCarver Elementary. All programs include snacks or a meal and active physical play breaks.
Students are followed individually and their families offered referrals to other community services as special needs occur. Overnight retreats draw in the older students and summer programs extend the school-year support.
You can volunteer at one of their after-school programs by going to peacecommunitycenter.org/get-involved/.
