Coloradans open up their wallets to give to those in need

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO -

Coloradans are opening up their wallets and helping those in need across the state for 'Colorado Gives Day.'

The Care and Share non-profit organization is one of many that needs the people's help. The food bank told News 5, they're hoping to raise $60,000 or be able to give away 500,000 meals to those in need.

But, they cannot do it alone. 

Every dollar a person donates will provide a total of eight meals to families in need, and to those families it's so much more than just a meal.

"When you think about the experiences that you're able to share with your loved ones often times food is the foundation that brings you together, so when we're able to provide meals to families and kids in need were able to give them the opportunity to experience joy and hope and belonging," said Joanna Wise of Care and Share Food Bank.

Last year, it was reported almost 34 million dollars was raised for non-profits across the state.
