Food Bank of the Rockies was delighted to be invited to the graduation ceremony at Patterson Elementary School in Jefferson County. The 3rd graders at Patterson learned about economics and giving back. They hosted a Teddy Bear Tea. The kids made Teddy Bears in art class and had the option of allowing their Teddy Bears to be auctioned at the tea party. They raised enough to provide 2,113 meals for the community. Wow!
Thanks to all the kids, parents and teachers for learning about giving back. Your efforts will make a big difference for hungry families this summer!
