CU students and other post-high school young adults will be back in classes in August. UUCBers will be planning meals once a month for the Progressive Really Inclusive Student Ministry (PRISM) members for the academic year. And we will be filling goody bags to welcome the students to campus at the end of August/beginning of September. We’ll be collecting small back-to-school supplies, such as pens, pencils, or hi-lighters, and non-perishible snack items, such as small packs of crackers or cookies, granola bars, small cans of juice, popcorn, and the like. Our collection basket will be out in the front hall on Sundays,August 30, and September 6. If you are away those Sundays and would like to contribute, contact Dianne Ewing (303-776-0227) ahead of time. We’d also like to have some fresh apples and home-made cookies on September 6 for the bags. Let Dianne know if you can help with apples or cookies.
Usually the first meal for PRISM is a barbecue on Tuesday after Labor Day—September 8, this year. The PRISM board members (representatives from various faith communities) host the barbecue, and we help provide some of the food. After that, the first Tuesday of each month when CU is in session, UUCBers provide a complete dinner for about 20 people. UUCB committees or groups, families, or individuals are welcome to take one month, plan an easy, balanced meal, cook and/or purchase the food and deliver it to the PRISM House on Grandview Avenue, near CU. Dianne Ewing has coordinated the PRISM meals in recent years. She will still help with this project, but it would be great if we could get someone else to take charge of each month (none needed in December; January’s meal will be late in the month; March may not be needed). The teen RE group has already asked to have one month. How about you? Dianne will be available to consult about logistics. Contact Dianne Ewing at 303-776-0227, with your questions or to volunteer.
