Sister Carmen Community Food Drive – September 26th: Sister Carmen is holding another drive through food drive! The food drive in July was very successful–they collected over 8000 lbs. of food and items. Since COVID is still with us and the cooler season will be here soon, they are trying to prepare and stock up for the upcoming months. On Saturday, September 26th, from 9:00am to 1:00pm, the drive-through food collection will be at their location, 655 Aspen Ridge Dr., Lafayette CO. Donations can 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.
