B’nai B’rith Colorado is working tirelessly to combat the spread and devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic hardship faced by so many in our communities. As of September 18, 2020, B’nai B’rith Colorado has raised and donated $47,000 in PPE and Food to those impacted by the crisis.
B’nai B’rith Colorado has faithfully served Colorado, the greater Rocky Mountain region, and beyond since 1872, continuously providing emergency relief, helping the less fortunate, serving as a driving force for good. Now, more than ever, we ask you to help us provide meaningful and life-saving supplies to those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are raising funds to procure and donate personal protective equipment (“PPE”) to at-risk facilities and vulnerable communities. B’nai B’rith Colorado has already donated thousands of masks, face shields, hand sanitizer, gloves, thermometers, and other essential PPE to dozens of nursing homes, schools, hospitals, synagogues, and other nonprofit organizations. Our primary goal is to significantly increase the scope and size of our community outreach in order to meet rising demand for critical supplies.
We are raising funds for the Food Bank of the Rockies, which will distribute food to children, seniors, and families who lack the necessary resources to sustain themselves during the crisis. Every $1 dollar donated to the Food Drive provides 4 meals to those who are hungry. B’nai B’rith Colorado has already donated more than 61,460 meals to Food Bank of the Rockies. We also donated $5,000 to Jewish Family Service Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Food Pantry.
