Partners in Housing
Our friends at Partners in Housing are in need of paper products such as paper towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, etc. They could also use cleaning supplies like dish soap, scouring powder, glass cleaner, etc. These items are stocked in the store where their families can shop free, thus helping to stretch their grocery money. A donation box is in the hall just outside the door to the great hall and your support will be appreciated.
King Soopers Rewards
The format for the use of King Soopers gift cards to donate money to All Souls has changed. You no longer need to have a physical gift card to designate funds for ASUUC. Go to the King Soopers website and sign in with your account or make a new account to go with your SooperCard. Once you do that, go the CommunityRewards website and search for “All Souls Unitarian.” Click the “Enroll” button, and you’re all set! Every time you shop at King Soopers, a portion of your purchase amount will be donated to ASUUC. There is no cost to you and the money is automatically donated to All Souls.
ASUUC Green Sanctuary Team is Forming
Evony McKenna shared a bit about the Green Sanctuary process in the Congregational Meeting Packet and at the Congregational Meeting. This team will work on assessment and planning for mitigation of climate change as well as either working with an ecosystem or a front-line community impacted by climate change. This involves building a team and educating the congregation, assessing the congregation and community, creating an action plan, creating a final report, and ultimately becoming accredited as a Green Sanctuary. Would you like to be involved in moving our congregation to become a Green Sanctuary? We are forming a team to work on this. We hope to have an organizational meeting towards the end of July. Please email Evony McKenna
if you’d like to be included in this important work.

Community Caring Team
Thank you to the volunteers who donated up to 50 multi-item snack and drink packages for our house-less neighbors with COVID-19 who are currently sheltered at the City Auditorium. A special thanks to the Community Caring Team members who picked up items from other donors and delivered them to the church. Good work friends!
The first part of the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church annual fundraiser is now over. Thanks to everyone that participated in the Online Auction. The second part, our traditional Auction Night, will happen in 2021 whenever we can hold it safely at the church. Keep checking back for details!
Calling for RE Volunteers
All are invited to our volunteer information/orientation sessions! A lot of our past RE volunteers are educators and currently employed in the school systems. As you can imagine, they are very overwhelmed this year, understandably, and cannot commit to helping out in RE this year. However, we cannot run our program without volunteers! If you’re interested in volunteering this year in e-RE, contact Dee.
