Cutting back on food is a difficult but often necessary choice for families struggling to make ends meet. Especially when you consider the impact of not having enough to eat. Hungry children don’t do well in school. Hungry adults may not be able to hold a job and not having enough to eat affects the ability of seniors to maintain their health and manage an illness.

When you support Community Table on Colorado Gives Day you can help put an end to families having to decide between buying food and paying other expenses and you can help stabilize families and give them the resources they need to be self-reliant.

For every $1 we receive, we can provide 3 nutritious meals for children, adults and seniors in our community who don’t have enough to eat.

Mark your calendar to donate to Community Table on Colorado Gives Day. Don’t want to wait until December 10? You can schedule your donation today by clicking the DONATE NOW button below and using the “Co Gives Day” option under donation frequency to schedule your donation to be counted and process on Colorado Gives Day.

 

 

 

Your donation is in good hands at Community Table. We have a “4-Star” rating on Charity Navigator, a “Platinum Seal of Transparency” on GuideStar and we are a Better Business Bureau “Accredited Charity”, which means you can trust that your donation will be used to help those in need in your community.

Colorado Gives Day, which began in 2010 to increase online giving, has raised more than $217 million for Colorado nonprofits. This year, Colorado Gives Day features a $1 million incentive fund. For every donation Community Table receives on Colorado Gives Day, we will receive a portion of the incentive fund!

Thank you for thinking of your neighbors in need!
