Volunteering at the Food Bank of the Rockies, Why it Matters

The Food Bank of the Rockies provides on an annual basis food for more than 411,000 people. With their direct service programs and more than 800 hunger relief partner agencies, the Food Bank of the Rockies is able to distribute 121,000 meals every day.

These facts are both staggering and impressive. This is why it is so important to us to be so involved in our community. It is so easy to get so involved with work and our personal lives that we forget to think about others who may need help. Every month we make it a priority to volunteer at the Food Bank of the Rockies and we always invite you to come join us.

 

This month we would like to highlight our local lending partner: Guild Mortgage in Westminster for coming out to help out our community. Andy, we are so grateful that you came out to help. We are also so very grateful for your support and that you value helping our community as much as we do.

 

We also want to point out the most important thing about this day. The Food Bank of the Rockies had no other volunteers in their warehouse for the morning shift which meant that if we hadn't been there, their local hunger relief partners would not have gotten their food orders filled. Together, as a team we were able to package more than 20 pallets of food! We encourage you to volunteer, it is such a fun and feel good experience.

 

We will be returning to the Food Bank of the Rockies again in early March. Please contact us via email or here if you'd like to join us on our next volunteering session.
