St Luke's has been supporting the people of the Standing Rock Reservation for several years. We have collected good used clothing and also new clothing for the residents and sent a semi truck full to North Dakota. This winter we focused on the elderly and sent stockings with things to keep them warm/. We stuffed the stockings with other non essentials as well. There was some overflow and we donated that to the local social service organization. We were unaware of their need and this might lead to our support on an on going basis. We are hoping to make a mission trip there in the future.
We have been very supportive of
Trinity Ranch, a diocesan camp in southern Colorado.
We have had work days there to refurbish cabins along with
other projects. We also have provided scholarships to local
children who could not have otherwise have had a camping
A note from BISHOP TARRANT of SD, Fall 2011:
We support the local health department.
We collect food for the Helping Hands food basket in Westcliffe. We also direct discretionary funds their way to help with the needs of the community. Although we are an affluent community, people have no idea of the local poverty that needs to be addressed.
