Letter to the editor: Englewood-area assistance agency seeks your help

Posted

COVID-19 impacts health and hunger in and around our Englewood-area base.

Unemployment rates are unprecedented, leaving people across the country facing food insecurity for the first time, including families in our neighborhoods.

Integrated Family Community Services is working harder than ever to meet this new demand.

Before the onset of COVID-19, we served an average of 800 clients monthly. But since mid-March, four times more people now turn to us for aid. This crisis proves that anyone can find themselves worried as they look into an empty refrigerator or bare cupboard.

Together with Food Bank of the Rockies, we are stepping up to meet the increased need. We are receiving and distributing record amounts of food. We’re overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of community support for our program and Food Bank of the Rockies, allowing us to provide additional food and resources to nourish our neighbors facing hunger and uncertainty during this difficult time.

However, none of this could be possible without the support of our community. South Metro Denver has helped us step up. Your gifts of funds and time allow us to continue serving those who need it most. With your help, we can continue to be here for the duration of this pandemic and beyond.

Thank you for supporting our hunger-relief efforts. Together, we can meet this challenge and continue to serve our community. To help, go online to ifcs.org.

Todd McPherson

Director, Integrated Family Community Services
