Charitable Contributions and Community Involvement



For the 2017 holiday season, we are specifically supporting two charities (in addition to our usual donations to many charitable and educational organizations throughout the year):

Alternatives Pregnancy Center

Alternatives Pregnancy Center cares for Denver-area women and men in pregnancy-related crisis and offers them a meaningful alternative to abortion.  Following the example of Christian love, this organization seeks to meet their emotional, physical and spiritual needs, and they enable and encourage them to choose life every day.  APC also provides STD testing and treatment, as well as counseling after abortion (when that is necessary).

Every year, thousands of women in the Denver area struggle with decisions surrounding an unintended pregnancy.  These women face tremendous pressure.  No matter what they decide, it will have a profound effect on their life.

At Alternatives, they seek to provide a network of support so comprehensive and caring that every woman will be fully informed of her alternatives before making a decision.

Katherine's has donated money to the organization, and also donated diapers, baby wipes, onesies, and binkies to participants in need.

Heart & Hand Center

Heart & Hand Center was founded in 2010 by Nikki Cady, whose volunteer work at homeless shelters in Northeast Denver brought to light a need for a stable resource in the community.

By creating a nurturing community, the Heart & Hand Center empowers all young people to realize their potential.  They envision a world with no opportunity gap, where all children have access to the resources, skills, and information they need to build vibrant futures.

The Heart & Hand Center provides nurturing, long-term support for 3rd to 12th grade youth in Northeast Denver through daily after-school and summer programming using a whole child approach.  What makes Heart & Hand unique are the meaningful, enduring relationships they develop with children and their families.  In addition to the enriching programming they provide for young people, they also provide families with resources and referrals for critical needs such as housing, food, and emergency funding.

Katherine's has donated money to the organization, and adopted a family in 2017 to provide Christmas cheer (i.e., necessities and gifts).

We are often asked to donate to various charitable causes and community fundraisers. If you are seeking a donation, please contact our office manager, Joan Kastner, to make an inquiry. We always try to lend support! Please submit your requests as early as possible, since we make our decisions on a quarterly basis. Occasionally, we reach a level of full commitment for the quarter. Merci and keep up your good works!
