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.

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.
