May Outreach & Evangelism Focus

We sent representatives to a Faith Leaders Roundtable meeting.  At the invitation from Mayor Johnston and Councilwoman Diana Romero Campbell, Lisa Schmidt and Jan Reich were able to attend the meeting at Tamarac Family Shelter.
The meeting was attended by many from District 4; Pastors, Rabbi’s, and a who’s who of Denver Leadership, including the Mayor himself. The discussion centered on the Tamarac Family Shelter, a facility housing more than 270 residents.
A “Good Neighbor Agreement” (GNA) for a Temporary Managed Community has been entered into by and between neighbors, the city, businesses, churches, as well as the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army is key in managing this shelter, assisting in finding permanent housing, employment, job skills, education and more for the residents.
There is always a need for volunteers, financial assistance, and contributions of various items such as 
personal hygiene products, books, etc. 
In May, in lieu of our loving contribution of food items to Metro Caring, we will be collecting needed items for babies – baby food, clothing, diapers, lotions, wipes, etc.  to be given to the Tamarac Family Shelter.
Our May benevolence, including our collection of products, are dedicated to the Tamarac Family Shelter at 7525 East Hampden Ave., Denver, CO 80231. These folks are our neighbors, let’s help out where we can.
