What’s In Store At GPHC, Inc.

Thanks To You, We’ll Be Ready For Anything This Year

By Amelia Eckles,Admin. Asst., GPHC 

One month down, 11 more to go… We have so much in store for this year and hope you’ll consider joining us for all that we have planned. 

Be on the lookout for upcoming garden-related sustainability events and volunteer opportunities. Until then, we’re staying focused on all that it takes to keep our food programs up and running. 

As the school year continues, so does the Weekend Food Program. This service exists to help fill in nutritional gaps for students at the Boys and Girls Club, Park Hill Elementary and Roots Elementary by providing these students with food for the weekend. This wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support of volunteers who sort, pack bags, and deliver them to schools throughout the neighborhood. 

The neighborhood’s help provides food for nearly 100 students each weekend during the school year. Thank you for continuing to invest in the health of students in our community.

Here at the office, not a day goes by without someone stopping by to drop off donations of canned goods, fresh food, toiletries, and everything else in between. This seemingly never ending flow of generosity allows us to do so much. Thank you for entrusting us with the work of sharing the abundance with those in need – and for your direct support to make it happen.

The donations that we receive from individuals, families, churches, schools, and businesses in the neighborhood directly support our Food Pantry. Our office is staffed by two part-time employees, and so we rely on our trusted volunteers to help us sort each and every physical donation that comes through our doors. To those of you who show up week after week to get food to those who need it most, you have our deepest gratitude.

Our Food Pantry clients are so thankful that the requests we make each month for specific items are met by your generous donations. Thank you for reading, and for answering the call month after month. 

This month, to continue to model our pantry based on clients’ choice, we’re asking specifically for donations of the following items: fresh and frozen meat, produce, prepared meals, and bread; coffee, sugar, flour, hearty packaged meals and soups, canned meat, canned fruit, carrots, home cleaning supplies, plastic wrap, foil, ladles, large spoons, spatulas, sponges, etc. 

Think of all the items you need in your kitchen to store and prepare food—we’re trying to supply clients with these items in February and March.

We also make donation requests on behalf of the Weekend Food Program. This month we would be grateful to receive individually packaged snack foods like granola bars (without nuts, preferably), fruit snacks, cookies, crackers, and cheese crackers.

Donations for the Food Pantry or Weekend Food Program can be brought to our office at 2823 Fairfax during our office hours Monday – Thursday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you’re unable to stop by while we’re open, both Cake Crumbs and the Park Hill Branch Library have donation bins available as well.

In addition to food-related donations, we gratefully accept monetary donations. If you are interested in giving in this way, reach out to us! Call us during office hours at 303-388-0918 or check out our website: greaterparkhill.org.
