After a month-long effort this past April, HBA Cares and project partner GE Johnson Construction exceeded the goal to collect 48,000 lbs of donations for local food banks across the Rocky Mountain Region. This monumental endeavor was supported by 31 champions in 5 states, across 13 cities and 51 collection sites, with help from 55 partner companies. Donations were given to 7 non-profit organizations who help feed hunger in Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and California. Together, we collected 87,352 lbs of food – roughly enough to feed over 125 people, three meals a day, for an entire year!
Locally, we collected 23,638 total lbs of food for Care and Share Food Bank of Southern Colorado, surpassing our goal of 16,500 lbs. Care and Share Food Bank exists to ensure that the one in eight Southern Coloradans at risk of hunger have access to enough healthy and nutritious food to thrive. We know that children without adequate access to food cannot develop successfully, families cannot plan for their future, and seniors find it more difficult to remain independent.
The generous support of HBA members helps make it possible for HBA Cares to carry out its mission. We sincerely thank everyone who donated.
