October’s Social Justice Offerings Benefit Shelter House
From 1983 to 2010, Shelter House was located in an older single family home in Iowa City’s north side. When it moved to Southgate Avenue and doubled in size, additional services and programs were added. Included are: job training, a job lab, internships, part time employment, a janitorial business, culinary catering, nursing clinic, and homeless veterans reintegration. You may donate on Sundays or online (designate SH on memo line). Thank you!
On Oct. 9th, the offering will go to the ND Pipeline Protest. Our social justice offering on Sunday, October 9th, will go to the Standing Rock Sioux encampment made up of thousands of protestors—Sioux from their nearby reservation, Sioux and many other tribes from various locations in the US, and allies from too many places to count. All are camping and protesting the pipeline that starts in North Dakota and is scheduled to come through Iowa. Called by some a “city,” the camp‘s activities include meal preparation for all, a school in tents, medical help, daily chore volunteers, etc. This offering is a substitute for the periodic Fifth Sunday special contributions in order for support to be sent sooner.
