Someone In Need Needs You
The employees at the KREM Ground station in Colorado pulled together to stuff almost 300 totes filled with food, clothing, coats, and personal hygiene items. The totes were then delivered to the Mountain Family Center of Grand County. This is the only food bank in the county and they service all 8 towns within Grand County. They also provide services to neighboring Jackson County. They have a weekend/summer food program for children that are on the free and reduced lunch program at their school in an effort to fight hunger. The Free and Reduced Meal Program ranges from 36% to 46% in Grand County. The coat closet also provides clothing for those that need it in a climate that can reach -40 degrees or lower in the winter season. The Mountain Family Center has many other programs that include assistance to obtain services and family support.We are a very small community and most of us have either received assistance or knows someone who has received assistance from the Mountain Family Center. It is very important to us that we pull together as a community to take care of our friends and neighbors.
