Loaves and Fishes
“Great people with good hearts.” Giving back is very important to us at This IS Idaho Springs, and this is the perfect time of year to give a little extra! That’s why we’re partnering with 12 great charities in the Denver Metro area, such as Loaves and Fishes, to highlight the great work that’s happening all year round!
What They Do
Loaves and Fishes provides assistance to individuals in need in Clear Creek County through offering food and other commodities. In addition to operating the food bank on a weekly basis, Loaves and Fishes also run other programs to help carry the burden with local families. They have several programs geared toward kids and families as well:
- Food programs in the summer for families that receive reduced price school breakfast and lunch
- Food bags for the weekend for kids in need at Carlson Elementary School
- School supplies during the back to school season
They also have special distribution for the holiday seasons, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. They ensure that local families can enjoy a nice meal as they celebrate the holidays!
Their efforts make an impact on the lives of local families and help spur the community to an attitude of gratitude and giving. By helping individuals and families in this way, they create an opportunity for those struggling to get back on their feet and impact the community with their story and their actions.
