A Food Drive Challenge – Denver vs Charlotte

Brought to you by the people of the United Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church, and the list keeps growing…

Congratulations Broncos Country!
The UnitedInOrange Food Drive was an amazing success across our region. We are still waiting for Carolina’s total, but wanted to share what you all accomplished together.
Food Drive Total : 360,664 donations
(With more than 140 sites reporting)

**This is triple what we raised in 2014 with 80 sites** It will be donated to food pantries in the communities where it was raised.

A huge thank you to all the drop-off sites, the communities that supported them, and the leadership that coordinated their efforts. This effort would never have happened without the support of Bret & Jenna Wilcox, who have managed the website and ever growing database of participating sites. We also were blessed by new partners like the Presbyterians (thanks Katie Robb Davis), businesses, and hospitals.

A special shout-out to the farmers of Colorado with 97,040lbs potatoes, 21,000lbs wheat, and 6,000lbs beef donated!

We also are grateful to the local media in cities throughout Broncos Country that featured stories about UnitedInOrange. News networks, radio programs, local papers… these outlets helped invite the generosity that will feed so many.

Please remember that this work is not over– most food pantries will go through this food in a matter of weeks, if not sooner. We must remain United in our efforts to eliminate hunger.

And know that whenever one of our teams makes the finals, we will be ready to use team spirit to make a difference in the lives of those who are hungry. (We have websites reserved for every major league team)

Hey Denver- let’s beat Charlotte on and off the field!

The United Methodist Churches in Denver challenged our colleagues in Charlotte to a Food Drive and we are inviting you to join us.

The contest is to see which city can collect the most non-perishable food items between now and the Big Game.

Stop by any of the participating locations listed below to drop off your donation. Suggestions include: soups, canned vegetables, peanut butter, canned meat, rice, dried beans… You get the idea.

We have until 11:59pm February 7th (Game Day) to help feed more hungry people than Charlotte can- showing that we are UnitedInOrange on and off the field.

Donated items will go to food pantries in each local neighborhood.

Can’t make it to a drop-off site? No worries, just make a donation online. Our online donations are going to DenUM. Be sure to say it’s “in honor” of the Broncos to get counted.
