A Successful Food Drive in the Rain! 

   We extend a heartfelt thank you to the Parker Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for their tremendous efforts and bountiful food drive they organized for us.  It came at a time when inventory is down and needs are up.

   Around noon on Saturday May 19, 2018, despite the rainy weather, nine vehicles drove into the parking lot stuffed with food for the food bank.  Check out the story on the JustServe.org website: 

   Thanks to all who participated and a special thank you goes out to the organizer of this spectacular event, Shaun Gann.

Senator Bennett Visits the Parker Task Force 

   Senator Bennett and some of his staff visited PTF on Friday 7/14/17. He was impressed and said he hadn't seen a food bank that could compare anywhere in the state. We were surprised to receive the phone call from his staff asking for the tour and visit, but certainly enjoyed hosting him and his staff.

Thank You
Master Gardeners and Douglas County

     PTF was mentioned in the Denver Post on Thursday April 28, 2016.  YourHub Douglas County ran a story about the Master Gardeners who work in the experimental orchard in the Hidden Mesa Open Space and who also grow vegetables for PTF.  YourHub Douglas County Story

Many Thanks To The Rotarians
For Their On-Going Support And Service!

   With cuts coming to programs designed to help the needy with their utility bills, The Parker Task Force wants to recognize the Rotary Clubs for their support to help provide this vital service to our clients.

  The PTF would like to thank the Rotary Club of Parker, Cherry Creek Valley Rotary Club of Parker, Rotary Club of Castle Pines, Rotary Club of Castle Rock and the Rotary Club of Centennial. The clubs held fundraisers that included a peach sale with Joy Lutheran Church and a karaoke contest at Takoda Tavern to raise money to help fund a grant for PTF. We also want to thank IREA for its contribution to this utility grant.

   The Rotary Clubs’ motto “Service Above Self”, exemplifies the spirit of the organization and their ongoing support of PTF. We are grateful for this long and valuable association and so are the many families who come to us for support and assistance.
