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!
Ways to Help
Financial donations can go a long way to help! For every $25 donation, we can provide 125 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.
Along with the turkeys we collected, we provide the fixings to our Partner Agencies so that they can make a complete holiday meal. The following list are the items we will be collecting:
- Stuffing Mix
- Canned Green Beans
- Canned Cream of Mushroom Soup
These donations may be dropped off at our warehouse (1108 H Street) Monday through Friday between 8:00am to 5:00pm.
