Sponsors Help Make PTF'S 2nd Annual Golf Tournament Held June 7th
at the Spring Valley Golf Club in Elizabeth A Huge Success
Picture Album

   All of the volunteers at PTF would like to send a heartfelt thanks to all of the wonderful golfers and sponsors who helped us make our second annual golf tournament a huge success.

   PTF's all volunteer force does wonderful work in the communities of Parker, Elizabeth and Franktown for our neighbors in need. But we cannot do it alone. This kind of an effort truly shows what a group of committed people in a community can do to make life a little better for everyone.

   We don't have a list of all of our golfers but just take a look at the list of heroes below and we are sure you will agree that all of these fine folks deserve a tremendous Thank You!!

   Of course we would be remiss if we didn't also thank the one sponsor of our effort that made everything possible. Justin Cirbo and all of the staff at Spring Valley Golf Club went above and beyond to help PTF make this event special. Their organizational skills, flair for presentation and overall "niceness" can't be beat.

   All we can say is we very much look forward to seeing you all again next year!!

The 2010 Thanksgiving Program Was A Huge Success

     The Parker Task Force for Human Services conveys a tremendous thank you to the citizens of the greater Parker area who donated food and made monetary contributions to the annual Thanksgiving meal project.  The project was a huge success thanks to everyone who contributed including area churches, schools, clubs, neighborhood groups and individual families.

     The Parker Task Force provided complete Thanksgiving meals to 400 families and Thanksgiving turkeys to an additional 500 families.  We distributed food baskets first to the client families of the Parker Task Force.  But due to the tremendous number of donated food baskets, we assisted several other programs with Thanksgiving food donations, including the Women’s Crisis and Family Outreach Center, the Elizabeth Food Bank, the Elbert Food Bank, Denver Inner City Parrish, and Warriors in Transition at Fort Carson.


  Cherokee Trail Elementary Student Council organized a Thanksgiving Dinner Food Drive.  During those five days, the school was able to collect enough food to provide 49 complete dinner baskets to families in Parker.  Then six families along with the assistant principal, Shanna Martin, delivered all the meals on Sunday.

The people of Newday Seventh Day Adventist donated 71 Thanksgiving baskets.

Youth from Providence Presbyterian Church annually help with the distribution of Thanksgiving Baskets. They are energetic and agreeable to take on any task assigned to them, including compacting the cardboard recycling bin as shown in the photo.

Like so many caring Parker families, Ted and his daughters brought a Thanksgiving basket to the Task Force and are shown here along with Co-Chairman Steve of the Task Force.

The youth from Parker United Church of Christ volunteered at the Task Force helping with Thanksgiving baskets and also donated baskets to the very successful project.

     On behalf of all of the volunteers at the Parker Food Bank, we are grateful for the support from our neighbors and friends.  Thanks to this community’s compassion, we are able to provide the helping hand to client families in need.  More importantly, the client families tell us they appreciate the support.

Sincerely,

Not to toot our own horns but…

is coming this summer
to Parker UMC!

   This production will be family friendly, with all ages needed to create the show. Everyone (babies, grandparents, parents, adults, teens, college kids, etc.) who auditions, gets in! Families can still take their vacations, as long as you can be there the week of the show. We’ll rehearse 3 evenings a week and not everyone will be called for every rehearsal. We want this to be FUN!!!

   There will be a participation fee to offset the cost of production, costume rentals and other such expenses. The fee will be $30 for individuals, with $10 extra for each additional family member. No more than $50 will be charged for a single family. If this fee prevents you from participating, please let us know. We don’t want to lose anyone because of the fee. All proceeds from the show, after expenses, will go the Parker Task Force.

   Auditions are June 2nd and 3rd from 6:00 - 8:30 at Parker United Methodist Church on Parker Road . Prepare a 30 second song if you want to be considered for a solo. And read – if you want a line. Otherwise, just come and be a part of the citizenry of River City.

   Performance dates are set for July 29th, 30th, and 31st.

Third Annual
502 Poker Run & Benefit
Sunday May 2nd, 2010

   We felt the rumble and heard the roar that can only come from hundreds of motorcycles getting ready to roll for a good cause.   This May 2nd, PTF hosted the 3rd Annual Poker Run. The event proved to be a success, raising money for the individuals struggling to purchase food and household necessities.  Everything raised in the event was donated.

   On behalf of PTF, we would like to thank our sponsors – Mile High Harley Davidson and Buffalo Boyd’s – for assisting in the creation of the Poker Run.  We would also like to thank the local businesses of Parker and surrounding areas who generously donated certificates and merchandise to the Run and those who were able to attend.  We owe the success of this event to all of you.

Holiday Helper!

   Tagawa Gardens is hosting a fundraiser for PTF from 11/18/2010 and 12/19/2010.  If you present a card (available at PTF) at the time of purchase a percentage of your purchase will be given to PTF.  Please come by and pick up cards for yourself, friends, families and neighbors.  Tagawa Gardens is a fun place to shop for holiday needs and gifts.


A Season Of Sharing And Caring

   The weather has turned crisp, perhaps some would say cold, and we're thinking warm thoughts of Autumn's bounty. Halloween is (yikes) just around the corner. The volunteers at Parker Task Force are already planning for all of the big events in November.

    On Saturday, November 13th PTF will host the 9Cares Colorado Shares winter drive. The drive will be held from 7 am until 4 pm at the two Parker King Sooper stores, WalMart, Sprouts and the PTF location at 20118 East Mainstreet. This is the only food drive at which we collect gently used toys and clothing in addition to food and cash donations. This drive is a critical jump start to our "harvest season" that allows us to sustain our services throughout the summer months when donations typically fall off. Please come out to support this drive, and if possible, volunteer to help collect, sort or serve as a driver on that day.

    Thanksgiving, with all of the associated festivities, comes up next. For some, it isn't quite as festive as it could be. When you are struggling just to provide the basic necessities, a Thanksgiving special dinner is just too big a stretch. Therefore, on Sunday, November 21st we will be collecting Thanksgiving food baskets in the morning and distributing them to client families in the afternoon. For some families, this is the only way that their families will enjoy a happy holiday meal.

    If you would be interested in donating, or volunteering in any capacity, please call 303-841-3460.

Thank you for helping those in our community who so desperately need you at this time.
