COLORADO SPRINGS — Thanks to the generosity of our community, the KOAA5 – Care and Share Drive was a success!
In one day, you donated over $41,000 to feed your friends and neighbors in need. That money translates into tens of thousands of meals and will go a long way in helping people through these tough times.
The need for food is critical with so many people out of work. In response, KOAA News5 and the Scripps Howard Foundation donated $12,000 to Care and Share Food Bank.
Wow! Thank you @KOAA and @ScrippsHowardFd for making a generous gift toward our mission and helping us feed more families in need. We are overwhelmed by the amount of support we’ve received through the day-long donation drive. Thank you for looking out for our community! https://t.co/BoTOv3Ekw7— CareandShareFB (@CareandShareFB) June 12, 2020
“Care and Share is a vital part in the framework of our community. Our community recognizes that and stepped up during this time of need to make sure that Southern Coloradans do not go hungry. I am very proud to be a partner with Care and Share and their mission,” KOAA News5 News Director Ryan Hazelwood said.
Thank you to all who donated and made this donation drive a success!
