Dawn’s Story and Hungry Kids

Colorado weather is full of surprises. Spring break in Colorado could mean fun in the sun or playing in the snow. It could also mean hunger. Imagine not having the energy to run and play because you didn’t have any food to eat today.  Sadly, there are children right here in our community who don’t have to imagine.  School breaks and weekends should be a time for kids to make happy childhood memories, but for 1 in 4 Colorado kids, it’s a time to worry when and where they’ll find their next meal.

Dawn volunteered with us along with her work group from Sage Hospitality. She shared her powerful story about growing up in a struggling family where she often received food from shelters and through the generosity of programs like Totes of Hope™ and our partner agencies.  She was excited to be able to give back and wanted people to know their gifts really do matter.  “As a kid, you do remember the kindness and you do remember having something to eat.”

Listen to her story and make a contribution if you can.

Success stories like Dawn’s are only made possible through the kindness of our community. Thank you!
