Families who are struggling with hunger this time of year are also facing other difficulties. Their heaters are holding at a lower temperature to keep costs down. Parents are trying to find the right words to explain to their kids why they didn’t get as many gifts as their friends. Children are worried about winter break because their family doesn’t have enough food. Through our seven direct service programs and our Partner Agencies we are working to reach everyone struggling with hunger this holiday season, but we need your support!
Here’s how you can help this holiday season:
Financial donations can go a long way to help! For every $25 donation, we can provide 100 meals to families in need. Hunger knows no season and we work year round to reach our neighbors in need. We cannot successfully do that without financial support. If you donate $100 or more, you can qualify for a 25% Colorado state EDEZ tax credit. For more information about EDEZ, contact Dee Stetz at 970-356-2199 x 324.
If you are making donations on behalf of someone for the holidays, we have cards available for order. You can find more information here.
Our nonprofit agency partners have requested 4,500 turkeys this year for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. We are still collecting turkeys, hams, and roasts at our warehouse (1108 H Street), Monday – Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm. Enter through the northeast Main Office entrance. Ring the bell on the wall for a special surprise!
DONATE THE FIXINGS
We also provide the fixings to go along with the Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys for all our nonprofit agency partners. This year we are collecting:
- Canned Green Beans
- Canned Corn
- Cream of Mushroom Soup or Gravy Packets
