9 Cares Colorado Shares donations benefit the community

KUSA - Coloradans came out in full force today to help us provide necessities to those need.

Saturday was our 34th annual 9Cares Colorado Shares food drive. We collected donations at five metro Denver locations and 30 other remote locations throughout the state.

It wasn't just food. Coats, toys and even cash were also collected to help those in our community. Others came out to volunteer their time.

At last count, we collected 328,678 pounds of food.

The food will go to approximately 100 food banks, the clothing to ARC Thrift Stores, the coats to Coats for Colorado and the toys to the Santa Claus Shops.

If you didn't make it out, you can still donate to 9 Cares Colorado Shares here.
