Food Bank of Rockies in Leadville Tomorrow
The Food Bank of the Rockies will be in Leadville tomorrow – Wednesday, Jan. 20 – to distribute FREE food to the local community.
The distribution will take place at St. George’s Church (corner of W. 4th & Pine Streets) from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
If you, or someone you know is in need, please stop by for a food box. Volunteers to help with distribution are also appreciated.
Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) is the largest private hunger-relief organization in the state of Colorado, providing food for more than 350,000 people annually.
9 Health Fair Scheduled for April 9, Needs Volunteers
Leadville’s 9 Health Fair has been scheduled for Saturday, April 9, 2016. The fair will be held at the Lake County Intermediate School from 7 a.m. – Noon. Not much has changed with the Leadville health fair which serves 400 -500 people every year.
A full list of health screenings will be announced in the near future, but for now, the fair is also looking for volunteers.
So here’s your opportunity to show how much rural healthcare means to remote communities like Leadville and Lake County. It doesn’t take much time, or all day even. There are shorter volunteer shifts and many of them DO NOT involve medical knowledge not interaction (i.e. you won’t have to take someone’s blood!)
If you are able to give some time to this worthy cause, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Rhonda Huggins via email email@example.com, phone (719) 486-1005 or join the next meeting on Monday, Feb. 22, 11 a.m. at the Lake County Senior Center.
