Arvada Non-Profits

Arvada Community Food Drive

What is your Mission and/or Mission Statement? Community Table is launching a community-wide food drive to collect 25,000 pounds of food by December, 25, 2021. The drive is needed to help offset pandemic-related declines in food donations from individuals and groceries “rescued” from local retailers.

About Community Table –  Founded in 1982, the Arvada Community Food Bank, now known as Community Table, began distributing food to hungry families out of a small house. In our 39th year, they have grown to be one of the largest emergency food providers in the metro Denver area, serving Arvada, Golden, Edgewater, Lakeside, Mountain View, Westminster, Wheat Ridge, and surrounding communities, including Northwest Denver.  Although providing food is still the core of their focus, their current slate of programs for those in need extends far beyond. In 2014, they added a “hand up” through Bridges to Opportunity that provides the resources struggling families need to lift themselves out of poverty.  In 2018, they began hosting Living Well Showers for people experiencing homelessness, and in the Fall of 2019, they opened an onsite health clinic for uninsured adults.  Community Table, a 501(c)(3) public charity, depends on support from individuals, corporations, foundations, churches and service organizations.

How can Val-U-Ads of Arvada better support your non-profit?  We love being able to share the mission of Hope House of Colorado with our local Arvada community. We are so grateful for the current support we feel from local community members working to help empower our moms, and we see our participation with Val-U-Ads as yet another tool to help us share the mission with our broader community.

Goombas Pizza Grinder was looking for hero’s in search of a Kidney for a family member. We helped them in this search and we helped others along the way.

Follow Up from August 2021:

“I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful Kidney Donor Page in the last mailer. I wanted to let you know I’ve had someone looking for a kidney reach out to me because of your mailer and yesterday someone talked to me about how they shared it with a church group and loved it! 

Since John got his kidney, he is doing very well! I’m excited to continue trying to help others. Thank you for having been such a big part of the process with your kindness! 

May other people find renewed health because of these efforts!”  – Ellie Papastergiou
