What is Attention Homes? To quote our own Vicki Kaplan, “Attention Homes (there are two of them in Boulder) are something we’ve been supporting in more recent years – they house runaway, vulnerable kids on the street. Teens. We have been paying more attention to these kids’ needs, especially since learning more about human trafficking in the Denver area, including Boulder. These kids are typically approached by traffickers with 48 hours, so they are very vulnerable!” Here is our chance to combat this difficult situation locally.
UMW and Outreach committees are hosting a donation effort during the Lent season. Attention Homes needs our loving care, whether it be financial donations for the Easter offering or physical items listed on
their wish lists.
Items smaller than a grocery bag may be brought to church and put in the designated bins. They will be delivered after Easter. Do not bring larger items to church; NO BUNK BEDS IN THE PARKING LOT, PLEASE. You need to deliver these items directly to their Administrative office: 1443 Spruce St. Boulder, M-F 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. For larger items or those not listed, call them at (303) 447-1206.
