After reading the article and comments about the crosses on Chapman Hill, all I can say is: If you want to help eliminate child hunger, there are plenty of opportunities right in your own backyard.
ECHO Food Bank in Farmington sent more than 5,000 backpacks filled with ready-to-eat foods home with kids from 17 area elementary schools last year so they wouldn’t go hungry over the weekends.
On Saturday, ECHO will be accepting donations of small cereals, juices, cereal bars, fruit cups, small pasta cups/entrees, Vienna sausages – things that are kid-friendly and shelf-stable – to prepare for the coming school year.
They will be at Center Court at Animas Valley Mall accepting donations from noon to 4 p.m. There are a lot of hungry kids in the Four Corners. You can make your donation here and know that real food will go directly to kids who really need it.
