While businesses were closed, jobs eliminated or furloughed, one of our lesser known yet mighty ministries became an important responder to the needs of our neighbors in our community. Little Flower Assistance Center in Aurora stepped up to the challenge.
In April, we estimated an increase of 60 percent over the previous month of households served. With weekly donations from Meadow Gold Dairies and larger shipments from Food Bank of the Rockies, families did not go hungry. Amy Eurek, Emergency Assistance and Disaster Relief Manager, was pleased to announce that with the support of grants from family foundations, the Knights of Columbus and others, Catholic Charities will launch two other emergency assistance centers.
In addition to food assistance, diapers, and baby supplies, a resource guide with information about where to find additional services will also be available. The expansion will last for the duration of the funding.
