The requests we are receiving to help children and families reduce hunger is growing so much each month. We really need your help to donate and for some to donate regularly to support our work that has included over 40 sites since our inception. We will be adding drop off sites but begin with Hampton Inn Denver . They were so kind as to allow us to use their facility for our Gala Event last November. They have sent volunteers and money since that time.
Please donate as an individual or family. Ask your teams or clubs to do food drive for us. There are over 10,000 children and their families just in Lakewood that are food insecure. This means that there is a high likelihood that during any month they can have not enough food, have to skip meals etc. Many remain silent in this suffering.
WORKING POOR are our over predominate families we serve. Living wage in Jefferson County is $32 an hour. Free and Reduced lunch families can be earning around $30,000 for family of four. We partner with agencies and non profits that strongly provide financial self sustaining support and training. Please consider supporting this food drive . We deliver to 20 schools and apartments each week. We will be delivering to over 30 sites this summer.
Be sure all items are exactly what we ask for and are not beyond food safe dates. That is greatly appreciated. Thanks for being the answer to their prayers and hopes. Barbara Moore, Executive Director
