Both individuals and groups are able to make donations at the Parker Task Force location for this year's food drives.
Channel 9, in partnership with King Soopers, sponsors the 9Cares Colorado Shares food drive twice each year. The summer drive was held Saturday, June 18 2011. It coincides nicely with the food drive that PTF does each month – and it has the added kick of tying in with the publicity and support of Channel 9 and Kings. What a day! We collected 18,870 pounds of food and $2900. What proves that PTF rocks – in this regard and many others is looking at the news release from Channel 9 below. You can see that PTF was second in collections in the entire state! The only site that reported greater numbers was the main hub at Channel 9 news. Darn good results for an all volunteer Task Force!
While we are immensely grateful for the support of King Soopers over the years, we would be remiss if we didn’t also mention the tremendous support we receive from WalMart and Safeway. PTF has conducted this food drive for 10 consecutive years now. And our store partners have been right there with us every step of the way. In addition, they all have supported other efforts and/or made additional contributions to PTF over the years.
We all do this because we care, we’re committed and we’re determined. Regardless, we can’t do it alone. What a beautiful blessing that we also have such wonderful partners in our community to help those who need us so desperately. Thank you to everyone who works so hard, in various capacities and from various businesses, groups, schools and churches to help PTF thrive. If you would like to volunteer on a food drive just give us a call at 303-841-3460. We would love to get you signed up. See you next month!!
