In the past, INC supported the Dollar Dictionary Program which ended in 2015 with the advent of technology in schools. INC feels that partnering with neighborhoods in Denver is important not only related to advocacy issues but also related to community giving. The primary 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.
The following plan will be executed during 2016.

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

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!
