RMWG Dec food donation will go this year to EFFA (Emergency Family Food Assistance) in Boulder County. In light of the flooding and hardship of Boulder County (which includes communities like Jamestown, Longmont, Lyons, and Left-Hand Canyon) it seems appropriate to direct these donations to communities hard hit and in need of more support. Boxes will be placed in the back end of a car parked ground floor near the door of TACtile at the Dec meeting for donations.
The EFFA website asks for the following donations with some guidelines following:
Tuna, Hearty Soups, Chicken Broth, Mashed Potato Mix, Canned Fruit, Cereal, Peanut Butter, Toilet Paper, Large Diapers
We accept packaged goods that are up to one year past expiration.
We accept perishables in good condition with little to no bruising or damage.
We accept toiletries and household products, such as toilet paper, hair products, household cleaning products, laundry detergent, diapers and toothpaste.
If you would like to learn more about this wonderful organization here’s the link for their website: http://www.efaa.org/donate/.Read More
