2022 Colorado Feeding Kids Food Packing Event Call for Sponsors and Volunteers


The 7th annual Colorado Feeding Kids Food Packing Event is Saturday, September 24, 2022 at the Food Bank of Larimer County, 5477 Earhart Rd., Loveland.

Krista Taylor, Eyeopeners President, spoke with Tuned In To NoCo about the Colorado Feeding Kids Food Packing event.

Being a Colorado Feeding Kids sponsor and/or volunteering to help package meals is one of the best ways to give back to our communities and help stock the food banks in Larimer and Weld counties for families facing food insecurities.

Sponsors

Being a Colorado Feeding Kids sponsor enables you to make a major impact in the northern Colorado community as 100% of your sponsorship donation goes directly to the materials needed to create meals for children and families in need in Larimer and Weld County. Last year, Eyeopeners volunteers were able to pack nearly 40,000 meals that were distributed across Northern Colorado through the Weld and Larimer County Food Banks.

Currently, we are $7,500 short of our fundraising goal for our 2022 meal packing event and we could really use your help by becoming an event sponsor.

As a $1,000 Gold sponsor, your:

  • Name and logo will be displayed at the event including several mentions of sponsorship at the event to volunteers
  • Name with the link to your website will be posted on our Club’s website
  • Name will be included in our social media promotions

As a $500 Silver sponsor, your:

  • Name and logo will be displayed at the event
  • Name with the link to your website will be posted on our Club’s website

Know that any donation that you are able to provide will be greatly appreciated.

Please mail your sponsorship check to the Eyeopeners Foundation Treasurer, Dan Hemphill, and note CFK in the memo line.

Volunteers are needed to help package meals on Saturday, August 24. We have two shifts available:

Light snacks will be provided. And bring a sack lunch if you volunteer for both shifts.

Remember to dress comfortably, wear closed toe shoes, and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.  COVID protocols have relaxed; however, as we are working with open food products, volunteers will need to wear masks to avoid any potential contamination.  Masks will be available at the registration table or you can bring your own.
