Sister Carmen Community Food Drive – July 11th:
Dear Atonement Members, we have a wonderful opportunity to participate in Sister Carmen’s Community Food Drive on July 11th. Many local groups who usually sponsor food drives for Sister Carmen have cancelled because of the pandemic; their food bank usage has only increased during this uncertain time. You can read about this in the Boulder Daily Camera for 6/26, page B1 or read on, here.
On July 11th, from 9:00am to 1:00pm, Sister Carmen is sponsoring a drive-through food collection at their location, 655 Aspen Ridge Dr., Lafayette CO. Donations will be dropped at the loading dock on the east side of the building. You will stay in your car as you pull into the dock parking lot and follow the signs. Their staff and volunteers will wear masks and unload your items. As a thank you, you’ll receive a sweet treat from them!
Consider helping Sister Carmen by donating items from the list below on July 11th. Also consider placing the items in a box or bag with a label or note that you are from Atonement Lutheran Church. Finally If you would like to volunteer for the event, contact Carol Hewitt at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
