Let's fill the Ark for Heifer International!
821 million people go to bed hungry every night. Heifer International is working to change that. Isn’t that a better gift than another tie for Uncle Gary?

Yes, this year we are going to have an Alternative Christmas program. With COVID-19, we will need to change the process somewhat. We will have order sheets that specify that your donation is associated with CUC and catalogs available if you are interested.

For order forms or catalogs, or if you need more information, please email greg.schriefer@gmail.com or call Greg Schriefer at (303) 704-6582.

Other programs for the Alternative Christmas program will be announced soon.
