Partner with us by giving financial assistance. HPHH uses your generous financial donation to provide emergency relief and long term help for those who are food insecure. Your donation also goes to provide nutritional education classes and assist with operational costs. Visit our donation page for ways to give financially.
HPHH gladly accepts food donations directly. You can drop off food donations during hours of operations to the Food Pantry at 7375 Adventure Way, Colorado Springs, CO. Best times to donate is Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 10am-4pm.
Help sponsor an event – At times, HPHH plans events and need sponsors to help with the expenses. Sponsors have the opportunity to help with the cost of the facility and equipment rental, meal, etc.; in return, their business or organization will be featured as a sponsor at the event. Contact us here about helping sponsor an event.
Plan a food drive. Drives are so helpful! A drive through your neighborhood, school, organization, church, or business can yield huge results. Each year, Boy Scout Troop 149 and several Cub Scout Packs from Falcon do their “Scouting for Food” drive to benefit our pantry. This year (2015) they collected 13,278 pounds of food! Whether 50 pounds or over 10,000 pounds, each amount helps tremendously! Contact us here about planning one of these drives.
Plan a DIY fundraiser to benefit our ministry. Any fundraiser (a 5k, golf tournament, vintage car show, yard sale, proceeds from a direct sales party (i.e. Pampered Chef), etc.) can help raise needed finances for our ministry. In 2014, Rock Solid Chiropractic sponsored a 5k and Falcon Business Expo to help raise funds for our expansion/walk-ins project and raised $3,200! Contact us about planning a fundraiser.
Volunteer time to help at the pantry. Please fill out the online application below or print a paper copy now to get started:
Provide a service for our clientele or volunteers. Penrose-St. Francis Health Services and Walgreens has teamed up to offer a Community Flu Shot Clinic at our facility for the past three years. As a result, many of our clients have been able to receive free flu shots. What a great service to those in need! The MSC Auto Maintenance Team has been providing free oil changes and simple auto maintenance for our clients. What a tremendous blessing since so many of them could never afford this type of maintenance. Ideas for other services include classes, haircuts, an Easter egg hunt or a picnic. Contact us to see how you can get involved.
