The Social, a restaurant nestled in the Castle Pines community, is a local gathering place. Gurney Thompson, one of the partners who opened The Social has decided to take initiative and follow through with the restaurant’s original mission- to give back to the community. “My birthday is this coming Monday,” said Gurney. “So I thought, what better way to celebrate than to start our new program, Social Give Back Monday.” The Social will donate 10% of the entire proceeds to Project ReCycle every third Monday starting this week. “Giving back has always been something we have wanted to do and I wanted to start honoring that.”

Tony’s Market Used Bike Drive – Sun, Sept 16th through Sun, Sept 30th
Tony’s Market is collecting used bike donations at all 4 of their stores for Project Recycle, which will pick up the bikes, refurbish them and give them–along with new helmets and locks–to needy kids in the Denver Metro area. You may also drop off bicycles at Metrum Credit Union, 6980 S. Holly Circle, Centennial. If you’re participating in the Tony’s to Tony’s Ride on Sept 30th (registration is now closed), you may drop off your used bicycle at the starting store, 950 Broadway in Denver. In 2011, they collected more than 100 used bikes at Tony’s Markets. This year’s goal is 150. Are you ready to donate your extra bike(s) for a good cause? (Tax donation receipts available upon request.)
With days away from our first fundraiser we continue to make news. Today our Executive Director AJ Stapleton spent some time on KLZ (560am) with Ralph Grills from My favorite non-profit, and Eric and Angel from Experience Pros. Watch the video of the interview and learn a bit more about 3t Ministry.
Every year employees of ULA engage in community support and make donations of their time to charities of their choice. ULA (United Launch Alliance) is proud to support these charities on behalf of their employees by making cash donations. Read more
Last Thursday 3t Ministry was invited to participate in the North Denver 5 de Mayo Event. We joined the neighborhood party and as soon we set up our table, we were invaded by a multitude of children and adults alike. ” Do I register here for a free bike? ” I heard from more than one parent or child. What a joy to see the community anxious for our arrival. The long days and multitudes of hours that go into preparing for an event do not seem to matter much when compared with the joy we bring many of the children in several communities in Denver. I love hearing the mixture of Spanish and English words that are used to described their emotions. I love children because to them things are simple and they tell it like it is. All this excitement because we were giving away 2 new bicycles. Fortunately 1 boy and 1 girl won the bikes. We were happy to see them ride their bikes that evening. Many thanks to David Ramirez, Community Liaison for Wyatt Edison Charter school. David organized the event this year in the streets adjacent to the school. We will return to the school on May 21st to distributed new and used bikes. Read more
3t Ministry continues to grow and in order to operate locally, we are looking for warehouse space in Douglas County area. Being an emerging non-profit our cash flow is limited.
