2012 Roll Out the Barrels Food Drive

The Community Action Network (CAN) of the Denver Bar Association is sponsoring the 13th Annual Roll Out the Barrels Food Drive to benefit Metro CareRing, April 16–27. Please fill out the following form by April 9 if you would like to participate.

This year you may choose from two options: barrel or online only.

If you select to have a barrel they will be dropped off the week of April 9 and picked up the week of April 30. Some barrels are looking a little shabby these days so please feel free to decorate them however you see fit. If you are interested in donating new barrels for this drive, please contact Kate Schuster. We encourage you to use the flyer that is linked to the top of this page to promote the drive within your office.

If you select to donate online you would visit fooddrive.metrocarering.org and click on the items you wish to add to your cart. Each item represents a dollar amount that will be donated.

CAN is looking forward to its 13th Annual Roll Out the Barrels Food Drive to benefit Metro CareRing, a non-profit hunger relief organization that operates one of the largest food pantries in Denver. Last year, Metro CareRing provided 148,000 emergency and self-sufficiency services to low-income and homeless individuals. Every day, Metro CareRing distributes more than two tons of food to families and individuals in need, and every family who visits the pantry receives a four-to-seven day supply of nutritious, sustaining food. By donating food to Metro CareRing, you assist us in eradicating hunger in Denver. In 2011, this two-week drive provided $41,051 in donations and we hope to collect even more this year!

Metro CareRing, in corporation with the Denver Bar Association, has been selected to participate in the Feinstein Challenge—a $1,000,000 incentive fund for hunger relief. The more collectively raised for Metro CareRing, the more impact your gift will have.
