kusa — It’s time for our annual 9Cares Colorado Shares summer drive.

On Saturday, June 9, 2018, from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. you can help fill the shelves of our local food banks.

You can see the list of locations that are accepting donations below.

Many families in our community lack nutritious food over the summer. Children who are not in school cannot access the free breakfast and lunch programs. Help us by donating nonperishable food or cash.

Food and toiletry donations are given to more than 125 food banks in metro Denver and along the Front Range from Fort Collins to Castle Rock. Our partner, Food Bank of the Rockies coordinates the food distribution.

We will also be collecting household items and clothing for ARC Thrift. Profits from the sale of these items help individuals with disabilities. ARCthrift.com

What kind of food is needed?

Any non-perishable food is appreciated; however, food banks prefer foods high in protein. Those include peanut butter, tuna fish, and dry beans. They also always need soups and stews, mac-and-cheese, hot cereals, oatmeal, canned fruit and vegetables and baby formula with iron.

Food banks also need toiletry items such as diapers, shampoo, condition, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes.

We will be collecting at these locations on June 9 from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m.:
