Lake Forest Shares (LFS) collects, organizes, and delivers boxes of food to individuals and organizations in need. Between 30 and 40 boxes of food are delivered every Friday, primarily in the Denver area, but also as far as The Salvation Army in Charlotte. LFS works with two schools in Lincoln County, providing heathy additions to their weekly backpack program. This is a growing ministry and looking for volunteers to help serve! The team is currently working from the leader’s garage, but plans to move the program over to the church building soon. Here’s how you can help:
Volunteers can serve weekly or as little as once a month (any amount of time is appreciated). Every week the team leader, Cindy Swanson, sends out a text to see who is available. It’s low commitment, and a whole lot of fun!
If you’re able to serve on Fridays, you can:
Unpack groceries at Cindy Swanson’s House – 7319 Timbercreek Court, Denver (11:00am-12:00pm); and/or
Deliver groceries and engage with people on your route (12:00pm-1:00pm
If you don’t have time to serve but still want to help, we welcome donations of nutritionally significant groceries (some examples include peanut butter with no sugar added, pure honey, whole oats, rice and beans in cans or dried, whole grain granola, energy/granola bars with no added sugars, dried fruits, turkey jerky, nuts, seeds) purchased by you or collected from your neighbors/colleagues. You can leave these on Cindy’s front porch anytime of the day.
Contact Cindy Swanson via phone (704) 619-8356 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or with questions.
