The goal of the committee is to promote the health, safety, sustainability, and curb appeal of UUFB’s facilities by inviting volunteer talent when possible, and hiring licensed professional contractors when required.  We use scent-free, dye-free, and sustainable cleaning and landscape maintenance products.  The distribution of keys is monitored by the committee. Insurance information is accessible through the Facilities committee; decisions about insurance are the purview of the UUFB Board.
Volunteer facilities maintenance events are scheduled quarterly, usually on Saturdays, and followed by a picnic for volunteers, whose time and talents are deeply appreciated.  Watch for announcements in the Sunday programs and weekly news email.
Volunteer opportunities include but aren’t limited to:

Yard debris pickup
Foliage maintenance
Parking area maintenance and parking assistance for events
Signage maintenance
Paint touch-up
Detailed building refreshing not covered by a professional service contract
Light carpentry and remodeling
Research and education for improved facilities maintenance products
