Last month, Colorado Early College asked for our help in providing essential needs, i.e. toiletry, snacks, hand sanitizer, personal hygiene products, and dental products.
Our friends/employees from Elevations Credit Union #elevationscu helped us prepare 100 bags with all of these needs. Not only did they pack the bags, they provided the bags, hand sanitizer, and bicycle headlights.
Additionally, our friends from Project Smile #projectsmile provided all of our dental products, i.e. toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste.
It's awesome when people come together and work as a team. So much is accomplished with partnerships!
For the third year in a row, we have asked the community to donate socks, winter caps, and gloves for needy families, homeless people between November and December 2022. Their first year we collected 400+ articles. In our second year we collected 700+ articles. Before the end of December 2022 (our third year) we collected 1,100+ articles.
We are very proud of our community that took the extra step to donated via drop shipments via Amazon, front door drop offs, and cash donations. The inflation and economy is tough while coming out of this pandemic, but that didn't stop people from giving out of the spirit of love.
