Jeffco Eats has in past two years reached out to the families living in Lakewood who are refugees. This month we are doing a targeted food drive for some families from Afghanistan and Congo. We only need foods on list. They have asked for these specific foods and we want to honor them by providing what they are in need of and have chosen. Please provide foods that are fresh and not expired dated food. We can also use gift cards of $10,$20 or $50 for them to buy halel meats.
Families range in size from two to nine. In Metro Denver very few Refugees live on the west side ie: Lakewood. Let’s show them a generous show of our love and concern for these neighbors. They are helped by International Rescue Committee in Denver.
Please bring foods to
St Paul’s Episcopal Church at 9200 W 10th Ave Lakewood. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with acknowledgement you will bring foods and provide us with your name, phone and email. We will advise you hours you can do drop offs. Mark the package Jeffco Eats Refugee Food Drive.
