A few months ago I had nothing, but now that I have a little extra I want to give back.
Rosanne and her two daughters, Cady and Eryn, donated 182 pounds of dry food, meat and produce. This small donation has a big story. This was the second time in three months she came to the food bank. The first time she came to receive food. She found herself unemployed and out of food. With nowhere to go she went to Weld Food Bank for help. In the months following her first visit she managed to get back on her feet. And, because of the kind service she received she felt she needed to give back. Rosanne explained, “A few months ago I had nothing, but now that I have a little extra I want to give back.” She approached her friends and family to join her in collecting food. Her 5 year-old granddaughter even chipped in with a bag of food. It is people like Rosanne that make everything we do worth it.
Curt and Diana
Our children go to school here and we want to help any of their classmates who need food.
Five years ago, Curt chaperoned his son’s class field trip to Weld Food Bank. They came to tour the facility so the children could learn more about the issue of hunger. That day stuck with Curt for a long time. He, along with his wife Diana, own a local gas station. After several years their business became increasingly profitable. They returned to the food bank along with a generous donation. Curt explained the reason behind his gift, “I came with my son’s school for a tour five years ago and I was really impressed with your work. Even though we own a business in another county, this is our home and our community. Our children go to school here and we want to help any of their classmates who need food.”
