The Chief Hayes Project 

ChiefHayes_2022_Details.png

When Ascent first started, Pastor Bill went for a walk with the Chief of Police for Louisville. While they were walking Chief Hayes showed him homes that were a risk of being fined for the upkeep of their property. Chief Hayes asked if Ascent would partner with the police department to help neighbors with their yard work. The Chief Hayes Project began from there!

This is a great opportunity for people, whether individuals or families, to come together to serve in our community. If you can't make it - please consider a donation select the "Chief Hayes Project" from the dropdown menu.

Logan's Christmas Shoppe

Logan's Christmas Shoppe

In 2015, Ascent partnered with Officer Logan Haymore with the Louisville Police Department to do a Toy Drive to help make sure kids in our area had toys for Christmas. Check out this video to hear more!

Over the years, the Toy Drive has grown into The Christmas Shoppe -  a pop-up shop that happens at Ascent every December that provides families the ability to shop for free for a few gifts for each child (plus some stocking stuffers).  Check out this video to see more about the Christmas Shoppe in 2021.

We are so grateful for all the ways people serve: donating gifts for all ages, setting up, decorating, inventory, shopping, and serving as stockers, greeters, or ambassadors for families as they shop. 

 

We hope you will consider joining us for this amazing partnership with our community.

(BVSD)

Book Drives for Elementary Schools

As part of our celebration of Black History Month in February 2021, we began a partnership with local area schools to help provide windows and mirrors for students through diversifying the bookshelves in Elementary school classrooms.

 

Check out the video to see what we sent to the teachers!

So far we have outfitted every classroom at Lafayette Elementary, Pioneer Elementary, and Fireside Elementary with diverse books.

Our goal is to contribute books to every elementary school in BVSD.

Cuba Partnership

Since COVID we have not be able to send teams, but we have been in regular communication with Pastor Willie. We look forward to when we will be able to send teams again.

 

Teams are crafted around both the needs in Cuba and the gifts from the people that God brings together. There are opportunities to garden, work, create kids camps, bible studies, to work with families who have kids with special needs, and so much more!

Ascent partners with Pastor Willie Santiago and his ministry in Cuba. Cuba Connections is a faith-based organization that works across denominations and partners with local churches. Churches in Cuba aren’t allowed to build buildings. Many pastors host churches in area homes (sounds like a tight squeeze!).

Ascent has sent several teams to Cuba to work with Pastor Willie: High students, College students, a Women's team and two All Ages family teams. See the video below for more details

Sister Carmen
Food Drives & Financial Support

Sister Carmen Community Center is the only organization providing comprehensive basic needs services and resources to the most vulnerable residents in East Boulder County (Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, and Erie).

 

Through their family-centered programming, they promote health, safety, well-being and economic stability by meeting one-on-one with the people they serve.

 

They aim to improve the quality of life for their participants, and assist them in recovering from challenging experiences by providing timely and meaningful wrap-around support in their program areas:

Nutrition & Healthy Living, Advocacy and Community & Family Education.

In September 2021 we donated 1,213 lbs of Food & $5,000 to Sister Carmen.

Check back soon for our next donation drive to support the great work of Sister Carmen!
