Special Thanks to an Inspiring Donor
Colfax Community Network would like to shine a spotlight on a sensational donor. An exceptional thank you goes out to Madison Kenshalo for her creative birthday wish. Instead of receiving gifts for her birthday, Madison encouraged her friends and family to give new and used pairs of shoes so that she could donate them to Colfax Community Network! Madison, your generosity will not soon be forgotten; thank you for all those who got new shoes because of your charity.
Summer is Coming!
One of our vans is in serious need of replacement! If any readers know of a large, used 15 passenger van for sale, please contact us at our office (303-360-9175); once our summer programs begin, our 15-passenger vans are our only means of transportation (to zoos, parks, swimming pools, museums, etc.) and will be seeing increased usage during these sessions.
We are running out of food!! Our biggest day-to-day need currently lies with our Food Bank. You at home can help us tremendously by donating non-perishable food and any unused soap, toothpaste, shampoo, body/hand lotion, and toilet paper. Because kids and parents spend more time at home during the summer, the demand will continue to grow as school lets out and trump our supply, so any contributions to our stock are greatly appreciated. Again, please call us at our office or email us to let us know when you will be dropping items off so we can arrange someone to meet you.
The Continued Rise of CCN’s Community Night
CCN’s Last Leg!
We are a couple weeks away from Kaiser Permanente’s annual Colfax Marathon and we at CCN are gathering last minute donations to fund our kids for the Bellco 5K race-relay. Remember, kid’s fees are just $20 and donating is as easy as logging onto the official race website or accessing this link: https://cui.active.com/event-reg/select-race?e=1621704&mailingId=&recipientId. While you’re there, don’t forget to designate Colfax Community Network as your charity partner (you can donate to us directly underneath the ‘Charity Partners’ tab), and take a few moments to browse through the other local-area non-profits who are allied with this great cause. Our relay team and after-school kids have been busy training thanks to the beautiful spring weather we’re experiencing; we hope to see you all there Saturday and Sunday, May 19th and 20th!
Colfax Community Network would like to take a few moments to send special thanks to all the people and organizations that helped us achieve our mission last month. Responding almost immediately to our depleted Food Bank, the Aurora Renaissance Hotel donated a wealth of hygiene products to help us meet the tri-weekly demand of our steadfast patrons. Platt Nursing College was especially helpful in assisting our Outreach, Parent/Child Education, and After-School Programs in April; extra help is always welcome with our programs and their support ensured smooth operations and happy Colfax clients. Steve and Terry of the Dread Rock group “Desciples” were a hit at last Thursday’s Community Night, as kids enjoyed their music while playing games and eating the delicious food provided by Calvary, thanks again!
