Did you know that 1 in 10 people in Colorado don’t have enough money for food? This year’s food drive will benefit individuals and families in-need through the following four nonprofit organizations: Summit County’s FAMILY & INTERCULTURAL RESOURCE CENTER and FATHER DYER, Eagle County’s SALVATION ARMY and Roaring Fork Valley’s LIFT UP. Our volunteers will be in front of grocery stores, passing out shopping lists to shoppers headed in and then collecting food as shoppers exit the stores. Fill up a basket (or two!) for the families in your community!
