A big THANK YOU to all the employees at Rocky Mountain Metal Container for their aluminum can recycling program and their annual Mile High United Way giving campaign that raised $3,639 for Community Table! The employees also collected personal care products, which we always need and thousands of shopping bags for our Client Choice Pantry. We so appreciate your continued support!
You can help feed your hungry neighbors and give them the resources they need to become self-sufficient by supporting Community Table on Colorado Gives Day, Tuesday, December 4.
Across Colorado, 1 in 10 people go hungry every day, and half of these are children. Your donation can put an end to families having to decide between buying food and paying other expenses.
Your donation is in good hands at Community Table. We have a “4-Star” rating on Charity Navigator, a “Gold 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.
Don’t want to wait until December 4 to make your donation to Community Table? You can schedule your Colorado Gives Day donation today through midnight on December 4 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 processed on Colorado Gives Day.
Colorado Gives Day, which began in 2010 to increase online giving, has raised more than $182 million for Colorado nonprofits. This year, Colorado Gives Day features a $1 million incentive fund, created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. 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!
Many thanks to The Foundation at Rolling Hills for choosing Community Table as the beneficiary of their annual fundraising cocktail party and golf classic. This year’s event raised more than $146,000! Our sincere appreciation also goes out to the Arvada Community Food Bank Foundation for all their support and partnership in producing the “Havana Nights” themed gala and golf tournament held this past June at The Club at Rolling Hills.
The Foundation at Rolling Hills, founded in 1999, is a nonprofit organization with the mission of raising funds for the benefit of worthy charitable causes in the local community. The Foundation is one of the few clubs in the country that supports local charities in this manner. The Foundation at Rolling Hills has raised over $2 Million since its inception primarily through the annual golf classic celebration.
The Anschutz Family Foundation has generously provided a $7,500 grant to Community Table in support of our efforts to provide low-income households with emergency food and self-sufficiency programs and services.
The Anschutz Family Foundation supports Colorado nonprofit organizations that assist people to help themselves while nurturing and preserving their self-respect. They encourage endeavors that strengthen families and communities and advance individuals to become productive & responsible citizens.
Community Table is proud to be selected as a grant recipient and grateful to The Anschutz Family Foundation for their continued support.
Help celebrate 35 years of serving our community with a donation. We are aiming for $35,000.

The Arvada Economic Development Association (AEDA)
has been a longtime supporter of the Arvada Community
Food Bank. This year, AEDA was looking to invest
in a program directly supporting Arvada families. The
organization has chosen to provide a 2017 gift to Community Table’s
Bridges to Opportunity (B2O) program to be used for rent
deposits for the working poor to attain stability in permanent
housing. Many of the working poor served are technically
B2O partners with the Arvada Housing Authority (AHA)
to pre-qualify families for rent assistance through AHA’s
Housing Choice program. However, AHA funds can not be
used directly for deposits, often leaving a final hurdle for
program participants to clear. Money directed by donors,
including organizations like AEDA, can then be used by
B2O to fund deposits and remove that final hurdle.
Marty Jewell (pictured), who recycles a large amount of all the plastic we generate at the Food Bank, secured and donated this Trex bench for her efforts. The “Marty Bench” is a great addition to our foyer seating for clients.
