Month of May Outreach and Food Drive for Metro Caring


Urban Servant Corps (USC) was established in 1987 as an intentional, faith-based community of full-time volunteers who live simply and support Denver non-profit organizations to help others in true need of assistance.  USC volunteers commit to a year of full-time non-profit service as well as a life of community living.  The program is a ministry of the Lutheran Church (ELCA) and is an LGTBQIA+ welcoming and affirming organization (RIC). All are welcome at Urban Servant Corps to worship, to hear the Good News, to receive the sacraments, and to share in fellowship and service. All members of USC pledge to themselves and to all others that they will strive to live as a reconciling people, in their life together and in their outreach to the world.

Urban Servant Corps is proud to offer several different service experiences at a variety of partner organizations in Denver. A number of social justice issues are addressed – poverty, homelessness, hunger, immigration, creation care/environment, education — the common thread is that all organizations provide direct service to vulnerable populations in our neighborhood. Some partner organizations include, but are not limited to:  Senior Support Services, Urban Peak, The Gathering Place, St. Francis Center, Safehouse Denver, New Legacy Charter School and Earthlinks.

May Food Items of the Month


Our focus for May is everyone’s favorite – peanut butter and tuna.  A huge THANK YOU to all for the soup donated during January, February and March. It was a challenge to try for 10,000 cans, we didn’t make it to that number. Our estimated total was 1912 cans of soup delivered to Metro Caring. Thank You!                                             Lisa Schmidt Outreach & Evangelism Chairperson
