We are so grateful that our community has stepped up to help our neighbors in need! Your donations are more critical than ever, as we have seen double the number of families coming to FISH during the COVID-19 pandemic. Did you know that FISH is spending between $3o,ooo and $35,000/ month on purchased food and we are distributing 160,000+ pounds of food each month? In FY 2020, we served more than 12,000 unduplicated residents!
This year, we prefer that people GIVE CASH DONATIONS INSTEAD OF ACTUAL FOOD. There are THREE great reasons for this:
1) COVID-19, coupled with skyrocketing need, has put a serious strain on our staffing capacity. This means we have limited time and staff/volunteers available to pick up and process donations.
2) Since we are distributing food items through an outside drive-through system, we need to have a consistent supply of certain items. It is much easier to buy exactly what we need in bulk rather than process many different types of donations.
3) We are a nonprofit, so we don’t pay TAX on purchased food. This means that your dollars go farther!
Your gift to Broomfield FISH delivers a healthy return. For every dollar you donate, 93 cents goes directly to our neighbors in need. There are many ways you can contribute.
