UCF held another Summer Food Drive for the Homeless where we distributed over 70 bags of food and water to our homeless brothers and sisters. We look forward to continuing to help our homeless community in this way.

Homeless Food Drive

UCF held a food drive for our local homeless community. We distributed  food and water to our brothers and sisters on a hot June day. Everyone was very grateful, both those serving and those being served. We will continue holding a food drive for the homeless throughout the summer.

Guest Speaking at Pride Middle School

Geshe-La Phelgye was invited to Pride Middle School to speak about Tibet and what it’s like being a Buddhist monk. The kids all asked very intelligent questions,  mainly about Buddhism. One bright student even asked about reincarnation. It turned into a great opportunity to share the Dharma.

Homeless Outreach

Universal Compassion Foundation handed out clothing to our homeless brothers and sisters in Spokane following Sunday Service on Christmas Eve. We’d like to give a big thank you to everyone who was able to make donations to our clothing drive and help distribute clothing. It was below freezing that day and we were able to hand out much needed warm weather gear to homeless women and men in our area.
