The Colorado State Patrol's Women's Resource Network (WRN) has partnered with Food Bank of the Rockies to stop hunger, and they encourage residents across Colorado to join in the fight.
Since 1978, Food Bank of the Rockies has distributed food and essential items--including 39.4 million pounds in 2011--to families in need. To continue the tradition, the WRN will help the food bank receive donations across the state.
Items of need include paper towels, bath tissues, toiletries, canned goods and monetary donations. All contributions will help in providing necessities to families within Colorado communities.
To make a donation in person, drop off items at a Colorado State Patrol troop office in your area. To find your local troop office, visit csp.state.co.us, and click on the tab labeled "Contact Us."
The WRN and Food Bank of the Rockies also have created a virtual food drive, which allows participants to donate online. To make a donation and to learn more about the fight against hunger, visit www.foodbankrockies.org/goto/ColoradoStatePatrol.
Food-drive donations will be accepted in person and online, beginning July 22 and ending September 2, 2012.
Join Food Bank of the Rockies and Troopers to make a positive impact across the state.
