Help & Hope Center organizes community food drive

After a major food drive in Colorado was canceled due to COVID-19, the Help & Hope Center is looking for donations in the beginning of November to help their clients make it through winter.

The Help & Hope Center, based in Castle Rock, serves those in Douglas and Elbert counties who are struggling with food insecurity. 

Their food bank, called “Mela’s Pantry,” provides three meals per day for each family member of a family in need for at least a week. The pantry also provides household supplies, toiletries, diapers, sanitary supplies for women and seniors and pet food.

The food bank is possible through various food drives and donations to the nonprofit. Without the typical annual food drive that the Help & Hope Center relies on this time of year, the nonprofit is concerned about meeting the needs of their clients during the holiday season.

“Please consider joining us and organizing a food drive with your family, business, church or community group,” according to a press release from the group. “You will make a huge difference in the lives of our neighbors in need.”

The Help & Hope Center will be looking for these donations from Nov. 1-14.

Currently, the center is looking for a variety of toiletries and non-perishable food items. Cash donations and gift cards are also accepted with $21 feeding a family of four for a week, according to the release.

More information on organizing a food drive is available by calling the Help & Hope Center at 303-688-1114.
