Story Type: Volunteers
The Switchbacks FC are a team and family who prides themselves on being involved in the Colorado Springs community. When the COVID-19 pandemic led to an increase need for volunteers at Care and Share, The Switchbacks team stepped up. Cody Costra, Communications Manager, said, “Giving back to the community means the world to The Switchbacks FC… We saw the amazing work that Care and Share Food Bank has always done for our community, and has continued to do even when the pandemic hit, and we wanted to be part of it to give back to our community.”
The Switchbacks FC helped pack emergency food bags to distribute to our partners and neighbors impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Cody, the experience was fantastic and rewarding. He was grateful for the opportunity to work with together as a team, to achieve the common goal of packing food for communities that need it most. He said, “We’ve met so many great Care and Share employees that have been friendly and helpful and that have pointed us in the right direction to beat the day’s record for the number of boxes we filled!”
Thank you, Switchbacks FC! We enjoyed having you all volunteer to help us ensure all our neighbors have the food they need to thrive!
