Volunteers come together to serve neighbors on 2021 MLK Day of Service
On Monday, January 18th, Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado honored Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy by making it a “day on,” instead of a day-off. 60 volunteers came together on this annual day of service to continue the example Dr. King set by serving others.
V olunteers gathered and worked together to pack 784 Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) boxes that will go directly to senior citizens in need. A group from SCHEELS came together to assemble 11,699 pounds of snack boxes for our neighbors, and American Heritage Girls joined and sorted 6,361 pounds of food. A very special thank you to all of our volunteers and groups who helped make an impact in our community in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr!
