Share The Plate

On the third Sunday of each month, Columbine UU Church “shares the plate” with a non-profit beneficiary. Information about this agency is available in E-blasts and by way of an insert in the Order of Service beginning on the second Sunday of each month. If you are unable to attend the service and would like to contribute, mail or deliver your cash or check  to the church.  If writing a check make it to Columbine UU Church with the notation, “STP” in the memo line.” Pledge payments will not be shared.  The slideshow above shows some of the organizations we have shared our plate with over the years.

Thanks for your generosity! 

April 15th Share the Plate Recipient: Jeffco Schools Foundation

Share the plate recipient Jeffco Schools Foundation

Did you know that 3,900 students were identified as being homeless in Jefferson County last year?  The Foundation supports two unique projects:  Serving Kids, which provides clothes to students who cannot afford to purchase items such as jeans or shoes; and the Homeless Initiative, which addresses the issue of poverty within our District, helping our most vulnerable students as they navigate personal circumstances in pursuit of their education. We help with items such as quarters for showers and laundry, school supplies and meals through the “Grub Club” backpacks with food for the weekend when school meals are unavailable.

Jeffco Schools Foundation is a nonprofit organization governed by an independent board of directors of community members. The Foundation was established over 30 years ago by people who strongly believed in the power and viability of public education.

We all need to feel a sense of belonging, place, and purpose in life.  If you are unable to attend the service on April 15, but would like to give, please mail or deliver your cash or a check with the notation, “STP” in the memo line.  Pledge payments will not be shared.
