Twelve percent of Colorado families are concerned about having enough food.
To help alleviate some of those concerns, 15 credit unions along the Front Range and Western Slope are collecting canned goods and nonperishable food items at branch locations for a statewide food drive.
The food will be donated to food banks in Colorado Springs, Canon City, Pueblo, the Denver metro area, Fort Collins, Grand Junction, Greeley, Loveland and Meeker.
In the Pikes Peak region, donations will be accepted at Security Service Federal Credit Union’s branches in the Springs, Fountain and Pueblo.
