Although we had to cancel the community-wide food drive on April 24 due to a nasty spring storm, a number of Brighton area businesses, organizations, service clubs, and individuals made significant contributions of time, talent, or treasure to assist the local food pantries during the month of April.
Several businesses held food drives, offering discounts in exchange for non-perishable food contributions, or collecting donations from clients, vendors and employees. Much thanks to the owners, employees, and everybody who contributed through Curves of Brighton, Play! Stay! and More!, Mike’s Auto Spa, V-Cuts, CPR Solutions, Redd Iron Inc, Anythink Brighton Library and the employees of United Power.
The Brighton Early Rotary Club, the Greater Brighton Neighborhood Volunteers, and The Soul Sisters collected cash and food donations from their club members and friends. The Todd Creek community filled up the food collection bin in fire station No. 55. Yoxall Creek, our local community supported agriculture farm, donated organic farm-fresh eggs. We also received a very generous donation of grocery gift cards from the Adams County sheriff, Doug Darr.
Over 40 people had volunteered and were ready to help with the April 24 event, including Rotarians, retirees, members of the Greater Brighton Neighborhood Volunteers, The Soul Sisters, Harmony Angels Foundation, the Brighton Bloomin’ Buddies Garden Club, Knights of Columbus, business owners, community leaders, food pantry directors and volunteers, and other good folks who wanted to help make a difference. We thank each and every one of them for their willingness to serve.
All of the food and money collected was delivered to our local food pantries: Calvary Chapel, His Hands Food Cupboard, and St. Augustine’s Community Food Pantry. These food pantries provide supplemental food to over 650 families every month, families that include children, senior citizens, and adults of all ages, who are finding it difficult to put enough food on their tables without some assistance.
The next Brighton Shares The Harvest community-wide food drive is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 28. But the need for nutritious food is ongoing. If you would like to learn more about how you or your business or organization can help, visit our Web site www.brightonsharestheharvest.org or contact Linda Young at 303-655-1550.
On behalf of our local food pantries and their clients, we thank everybody in the Brighton area who helped with food donations during the month of April.
