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!
October 21st Share the Plate Recipient: The Delores Project
The Delores Project is named for Delores Big Boy, a Lakota woman who died living on the streets of Denver. Although she sought aid from various agencies, she fell through the cracks in the system. The founders of the Delores Project chose to honor her memory so that they could always continue their work with a commitment to ensuring safe shelter for every woman and support for those in transition.
The Delores Project provides welcoming, shelter and services for unaccompanied women and transgender individuals during times of homelessness. They believe that hospitality, respect, and regard for the dignity of each individual lay the groundwork for forming positive relationships leading to lasting change.To this end, recipients receive services with as few requirements and barriers as possible. At the Delores House, they welcome each guest, as they are, with no immediate expectations that they must “fix” their lives as quickly as possible; people are not broken.
