COLORADO SPRINGS – The care and compassion of this community is boundless, and it’s typified by Chris Graham.

The veteran worked with Fort Carson on a fundraiser to provide a special food donation to Ecumenical Social Ministries in Colorado Springs. In conjunction with local union 1345, they were able to provide $250 worth of food to the ESM food bank.

Graham told News5 that wherever there is a need, he is going to find a way to help. He said this is a worthwhile thing to do, taking care of each other, the community because that was the way he was brought up, especially he said, with his military family, where they take care of each other.

The donation drive was also able to provide other family household essentials like diapers and toothpaste.
