Charitable Works

MISSION:
The purpose of INC’s “Charitable Works” Program is to increase visibility and support for Denver’s inter-neighborhood charitable and service organizations that work to improve life in Denver. To this end, INC’s Charitable Works Program works with member RNO’s and other allied groups both to identify such organizations, and to establish relationships with them.

PURPOSE:
INC’s Charitable Works program does not seek to duplicate or supplant existing programs and services or to serve as an educational arm of INC.

Rather, the overall purpose of this Program is to support strong and involved neighborhood and community development throughout Denver by helping neighborhood organizations expand their abilities to offer and sustain their charitable services whether through generating awareness, promoting volunteerism, or creating a vehicle for generating material support.

PRIMARY GOAL:
The goal is to create a program grounded in Community Charitable Works which is neighborhood-based and which can be responsive to the wide range of needs and concerns of Denver’s many diverse neighborhoods.

Denver Feed-A-Family Thanksgiving Distribution

epworth

Denver Feed-a-Family Thanksgiving Distribution program may be suspended due to
lack of funding. We are reaching out for help with funding. Each year an average of 37,000 people are fed through the Denver Feed-a-Family program and over 350,000 pounds of food are distributed each year to feed families. The program costs over $200,000, with close to 90% of that being food costs, and the remainder
is permitting, and operations for the event. No funds go towards any overhead or general operating costs for The Epworth Foundation or any of its partners. READ MORE

INC Delegates Help Drive School Supplies

works

Many thanks to INC and to our INC delegates who contributed to the August school supply drive! This drive benefited multiple schools in the Cole and Clayton neighborhoods. INC donated around 300 dictionaries and thesauruses remaining from past years of INC’s long-running dictionary project, and delegates donated several boxes of various school supplies.
The children were excited to receive these supplies and all will be put to good use!
Thank you all again for helping these students get a good start on the school year!
