Crisis Response: Stories of hope from our clients 
Our fantastic clients have been working diligently to respond to urgent needs in the community during this time of crisis. Here are some highlights that bring us hope:
   

A Little Help

A Little Help, an organization helping older adults to thrive, quickly mobilized volunteers to offer kindness, connection, and essential resources to the older adults they serve. Last week, A Little Help put out a call for volunteers to make regular phone calls to check in on community members, grocery shop, and pick up prescriptions for older adults. The response was an overwhelming wave of community compassion—more than 6,000 volunteers reached out to offer their time! It’s inspiring to see so many neighbors step up to care for their communities in this time of need.

   
   

The Action Center
The Action Center, an organization that offers stabilizing resources to those facing hardship, has modified their services to distribute food while accommodating social distance by moving to a drive-thru/walk-up model. Closures in the restaurant industry have spurred an influx of food donations from partners such as Sheraton Denver West and Polidori Sausage. The Action Center is making sure excess food gets on families’ tables instead of going to waste! 

The Action Center is looking for healthy volunteers, ages 15-59, to help with their drive-thru food distribution services.
   
Children explore fossils at Dinosaur Ridge.

Dinosaur Ridge
Dinosaur Ridge, a beloved historical site in Colorado featuring dinosaur tracks and educational tours, has temporarily closed to prioritize the safety of its visitors and staff. But this hasn’t stopped the Friends of Dinosaur Ridge from providing engaging educational resources to their community! Children, families, and educators can now access free online resources such as the Family Field Guide and coloring sheets to learn about paleontology and geology. We think this is a great opportunity for families to spend quality time together while learning something new. Additionally, the Dinosaur Ridge Trail remains open for walkers, hikers, and cyclists.

Is your organization adapting its services to respond to urgent needs in the community? We’d love to hear about it.
