And For This, We Are Grateful
This year more than ever, we have friends and neighbors reach out to us about local organizations that may need a helping hand. Here are a few local food banks/organizations if you are looking to give back:
Mountain Backpacks Program - Food assistance for students in Jefferson and Clear Creek County schools.
Food Insecurity is rising due to the economic consequences of Covid-19. This last year, over 13 million households with children under 18 reported not having enough to eat. Your donation will go towards purchasing food for our student "pantries". These pantries are open to any child who is hungry. School day snacks and take home meals will be available giving children direct access to the food they need. Thank you for helping to kids full and focused. https://www.mountainbackpacks.org/
