Care N’ Share Program Benefits Local Non-Profits

Helping the Wyoming Rescue Mission

In January 2021 UU Casper donated $300 to our current “Share the Plate” nonprofit, the Wyoming Rescue Mission. Practicing “restorative hospitality,” the Mission provides shelter to those facing homelessness in central Wyoming, and does so much more.

According to wyomission.org, the Mission practices “… restorative hospitality to serve and empower all members of our community in need of refuge, recovery, and rehabilitation. Whether homeless, in need of immediate shelter, or pursuing long-term transformation, we aim to equip every guest with independence and dignity.”

In the last year, the Mission estimates that it has provided over 64,000 meals and 45,000 beds. Please help us support this amazing organization that provides crucial services for our central Wyoming community!

You can find more information, sign up to volunteer, and donate to the Mission at wyomission.org. Let’s help our Casper community!

Helping Wyoming Food for Thought Project

In November 2020 UU Casper donated $300 to our current “Share the Plate” local non-profit, Food for Thought, to help feed our Natrona County kids and their families over the holidays. FFT will be packing meals on December 16th for the holiday school break, and sponsoring the annual Stuff the Van Toy Drive December 14-19th. Please consider donating to or helping out! Go to wyomingfoodforthoughtproject.com for more information, volunteer opportunities, and to donate. Let’s work together to help our Casper community!

UU Casper Annual Yard Sale

Beginning in 2016, UU Casper holds a yard sale each summer to raise money for worthy causes, like the UU Casper Religious Exploration Program, beautification of the sanctuary, and local charities. Although no sale was held in 2020 because of the pandemic, save your treasures for next year’s yard sale!
