For weeks now, we’ve been collecting rolling suitcases and backpacks to distribute in downtown Denver on Christmas Day. Thanks to the generosity of our awesome Stigma volunteers and donors, we have made great progress toward our goal of 1,000 rolling suitcases and backpacks. But we still have hundreds more to collect, and we need your […]
Thank you to all of our stigma fighters who have donated rolling suitcases for our Christmas in the Park event. We are making progress, but we still have a long way to go to reach our goal of 1,000 rolling suitcases and backpacks for our homeless neighbors.
Christmas is going to be a little different this year, but that doesn’t have to be all bad. In this year of virus-imposed change, make a change for the better.

It’s official! We received our tax exempt letter from the IRS. Stigma has received our 501c3 status. That means all of your generous support, all of your donations in 2020 and into the future, are fully tax deductible as you help us fight the stigmas of addiction, homelessness and poverty.
As we all do the right things, social distance and stay home as much as possible, the needs of our homeless neighbors are greater than ever. We called for your help, and our Stigma volunteers delivered! You donated peanut butter, jelly, bread, and a whole bunch of pairs of socks for us to distribute in […]
