The Service Projects at our upcoming Unity Retreat in Colorado will follow the outline of previous efforts at the Unity Retreats in Arizona. All devotees are encouraged to participate in projects, as well as request service from the SEVA Team when needed. There will be service internally for the devotees, and two projects: 1) a working project for the; Cathedral Ridge Retreat Center; 2) a donations project for the Gathering Place, a nonprofit drop-in center in Denver for women, transgender individuals, and their children, many of whom are experiencing homelessness.
The current SEVA Team consists of the following devotees: Surya Immadisetty, Sai Bhavaraju, Prashanth Tipparthi, Terri Dodd and Ernie Duff. Please call on us at anytime. We will be wearing kerchiefs. We may still add a few more members.
Here is a list of projects for the Retreat Center, in their order of priority. Our project will occur on the Sunday morning of the Retreat, and you are encouraged to bring a set of work clothes and work gloves, please. A maintenance person from the Center will be there to facilitate.
