Aurora groups provide food and other supplies to those in need on Overland High Saturday
AURORA | A Passel from Aurora Organizations will be offering free food and other sundries to needy local families this Saturday at Overland High School.
Both Aurora school districts, along with the Aurora Police Department, the Food Bank of the Rockies, and several other regional units, will be distributing both fresh and ready-to-eat meals to Aurora families from 10 a.m. on June 5th.
The event at 12400 E. Jewell Ave. The rule is: first come, first served and lasts until all supplies have been distributed.
The groups will also be handing out 30,000 diapers, 5,000 pounds of pet supplies and 1,000 summer activity packs of books, water bottles and online resources for children.
“The past year has been a struggle for many local families,” Aurora police officer Crystal McCoy wrote in a statement. “By leveraging resources, community partners can expand their reach with the goal of helping Aurora families start their summer with much-needed food, baby and pet supplies, and summer activity packs to keep teenagers and children active.”
Participants arriving by car are asked to stay in their vehicles while waiting. Everyone arriving on foot is asked to maintain social distance and wear a face mask.
