The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: The Horror

7 p.m.

Our celebrated Hootenanny in the Hills brings L.A.'s finest musicians, storytellers, and comedians to our beautiful sanctuary for a night of music and laughs which the L.A. Times recently called "Hilarious!" and "A compelling experience."

This month's theme is THE HORROR: Music, Comedy, And Storytelling covering horrors however our performers interpret them. Scary songs? Ghost stories? Maybe an appearance by La Llorona? We don't know. Anything could happen (and still be family-friendly, of course).

Host Marty Barrett welcomes special guests Maria Alexander, Marisol Barrett, Chris Bonno, Lisa Finnie, and Steve Johnson, for a night of entertainment in our cool sanctuary that is not to be overlooked.

If you are a parent needing a date night, come right in! We have childcare available for a nominal fee, provided by licensed and trained childcare workers. Please contact Elizabeth Brown at least a week beforehand.

Recommended donation: $10

Burbank Temporary Aid Center

Join us in supporting the Burbank Temporary Aid Center, BTAC, is dedicated to providing the poor, working poor, and homeless of the local community with basic services they need to live with dignity, and to serve citizens of the city in times of emergency and disaster. As a conduit between the generous donors of the community, foundations and government resources, BTAC works to provide clients with help such as food, utility assistance, transportation assistance, emergency shelter (off-site and short-term), medical assistance, referrals to other community resources, and holiday outreach.

On Sundays, please bring any of the following items to UUCVH which we will donate to BTAC for you.

  • Individual serving packages of foods (like applesauce etc), milk & juice boxes
  • macaroni & cheese
  • peanut butter
  • cereals
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • canned soups
  • canned meats (chicken, tuna, etc.)
  • rice, pasta
  • instant potatoes
  • pancake mixes, syrup
  • personal hygiene supplies like toothpaste, tooth brushes, deodorant
  • canned goods with easy-open pull-tabs are especially appreciated
  • Please, no ramen noodles, or exotic, specialty-food items.
  • BTAC does not accept clothing donations

In 1974, the Ministerial Association and the Burbank Coordinating Council recognized the need for a centralized source of services for the less fortunate in our community. The Burbank Temporary Aid Center (BTAC) was founded to address these needs.  The Unitarian Universalist Church of the Verdugo Hills (UUCVH) and the former Burbank Unitarian Fellowship (BUF) have supported BTAC since its founding.

BTAC provides clients a variety of programs and services including:

  • Groceries from BTAC’s Food Pantry
  • Daily sack lunches for the homeless
  • Monthly Senior Food Distribution program
  • Assistance with utility bills
  • Transportation assistance
  • ID/License replacement program
  • Limited medical assistance
  • Limited emergency shelter, via a voucher program with cooperating businesses in the area
  • Shower facilities for the homeless
  • Laundry facilities for the homeless and other clients
  • Holiday “Santa’s Room” gift program for needy children

BTAC is often given opportunities to provide additional services required by our clients, and seeks to identify resources to help meet those needs.
