2021 DAY OF SERVICE: FOOD DRIVE

Sharing is caring and food pantries need our support more than ever. We support the non-stop efforts of our local food pantries: Mountain Resource Center (Conifer) and LifeBridge and Widow’s Oil, both in Bailey.

 

Stop by at First Bank parking lot in Aspen Park on May 8th.  Your Food Drive gift is a sign of unity. We can help each other stay healthy and build a better community by feeding the hungry in our Foothills. And if you have a moment, stay for a chat with us, your neighbors. We’d love to tell you more about Conifer Rotary, our service club. 

 

WHEN: SATURDAY, MAY 8, 2021. 10 AM – 3 PM

All food collected will go to local Food Pantries: Mountain Resource Center, LifeBridge, and Widow’s Oil.

WHERE: Parking lot @ First Bank in Aspen Park

Guessing Jar Fundraiser 

Support the 285 Backpack Project

Rotary Club of Conifer members work hard, rain, snow, or sunshine, to make sure kids have healthy food and snack each week. When you buy guesses in our Guessing Jar Fundraiser, you help feed our Foothills kids. What a wonderful feeling!

 

There is something truly exciting about having the bragging rights of the winning guess AND winning the jar AND a $25 gift card on top of that!
We have mixed the number and types of candy in the jar to make it more challenging.
You can buy:
1 guess for $3
2 guesses for $5
5 guesses for $10, and
12 guesses for $20.

 

LAST DAY TO SUBMIT GUESSES: MAY 20, 2021

The system supplies clean water to 3,000 residents in 8 villages for the first time ever, comes from a spring and has a gravity feed system making maintenance easy, and is a fine example of what Rotary Foundation contributions support.
