Residents Given Opportunity to Contribute to Great Cause

food drive articleJoin fellow do-gooders – New Perspective Real Estate and The Stapletonion, in collecting food for the Food Bank of the Rockies and local school pantries.

Hunger is a serious issue and not just for the pot smokers struggling with the munchies. Here are some creative ideas to donate to this worthy cause:

Clear out all the protein shakes, quinoa, and chia seeds that were necessary for your last health kick, OR

Clear out the Rotel & Velveeta you bought for Football Sundays, OR

Head to Target or King Soopers and pat yourself on the back for cleverly DOUBLE donating: non-perishable goods for the food drive AND 5% of your purchase to the school of your choice!

Then, take food items to your nearest drop-off location. Be sure to get credit for your generosity! Drop a few cans to garner attention, then proudly hoist your contribution into the donation barrel… the more bags, the better! Donation barrels can be found at the following awesome businesses:

Schools will be collecting for their food pantries and include:

Special thanks to our sponsors helping behind the scenes: etai’s, First Integrity Title Co., Ben Gehde Home Mortgage Alliance, North American, Stapleton Home Services and The Stapletonion.

If dropping off is too difficult, look for a white & blue paper grocery bag to be delivered to your home on October 1st, fill it from your pantry (go back to creative ideas) and leave on your front porch by 9 am on Saturday, October 8th.

Volunteers Needed
NPRE is looking for volunteers to help with the drop off and pick up of the bags. This is a great way to get your family involved in a wonderful cause, and kids love running to the doors to drop off and pick up the bags. The more volunteers the better! Volunteers for the drop off will receive breakfast from Etais on Saturday, October 1st. Volunteers for the pickup will receive lunch from Micis on Saturday, October 8th.
