The Colorado State Patrol’s Women’s Resource Network (WRN) will conclude its statewide food drive during the group’s annual conference on Monday, September 10. As the nearly seven-week event draws to a close, Troopers will deliver donations from across Colorado to the Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies in Grand Junction at 5:30 p.m.
From July 22 through September 9, the WRN partnered with Food Bank of the Rockies to collect donations of food and essential items for Colorado residents in need. Since 1978, Food Bank of the Rockies has distributed food and essential items—including 39.4 million pounds in 2011—to Colorado communities. Part of the WRN’s mission is to provide a positive network of resources and opportunities for community involvement for the purpose of ultimate life enrichment, both for female Troopers and for the communities they serve.
The partnership between the two groups represents a natural extension of their collective commitment to Colorado and its residents. For the WRN, it provides an opportunity for Troopers to give back to their communities while honoring the Colorado State Patrol’s core values of Honor, Respect and Duty.
Currently, Troopers have collected donations ranging from canned goods and toiletries to monetary gifts, all of which will go to the Food Bank of the Rockies. Although the official food drive will end on Monday, the Colorado State Patrol and Food Bank of the Rockies encourage Colorado residents to join them in pledging a continuous commitment to the fight against hunger.
