Larimer County Food Drive Results

Stacked non-perishible food on a table for the Larimer County food bank

This holiday season, the Points West Community Bank Fort Collins, Julesburg and Wellington locations held a food drive to support the Food Bank for Larimer County. This drive turned out to be a huge success with an outpouring of support from Larimer County residents. We couldn’t have done it without all of the amazing people who donated and helped put the food drive together. We want to send a special “thank you” to everyone who participated and made our first official Points West Cares initiative a success!

With everyone’s support and donations, we were able to donate 170 pounds of non-perishable food to the Food Bank for Larimer County! This accomplishment really shows how caring the wonderful Larimer County community is. We are truly grateful to be a part of Larimer County and we are continuing to put together more events to give back to the various neighborhoods we operate in.

We also hosted a SERVE 6.8 Giving Tree at the Water Valley & Windsor Main Street locations this holiday season. We were able to donate 30 gifts and 7 gift cards this year with the help from the Windsor community. Thank you to everyone who donated items and helped make this giving tree possible!

Points West Cares is a new, on-going community betterment project. We will be coordinating different projects throughout 2020 and beyond to deepen our roots in the communities we call home. These projects will range from food drives to volunteer programs. Stay tuned by following us on Facebook and Instagram to see which initiative is coming to your hometown.

At Points West Community Bank, we believe in the importance of building a better community. Through a great relationship with the public, we are able to give back to the people who need it most. We look forward to the new year and all the things we can accomplish together!

Giving the Gift of Health to Larimer County

Through Points West Community Bank’s new on-going community betterment project, Points West Cares, we will be participating in a Food Drive for Larimer County Food Bank.

The Food Bank ensures that those in our community who are hungry have convenient access to free, healthy and nutritious food.

Now through December 13th, the Wellington and Fort Collins Timberline locations will be collecting food items that will be delivered the Food Bank by December 18th.

In order to help our neighbors move from hunger to health, we ask that you please donate nutritious, non-perishable foods such as peanut butter with non-hydrogenated oils, whole grain pasta, brown rice, canned tuna or chicken in water, whole grain oats and cereal with low sugar, canned fruits in juice, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds and dried fruits. Please bring items in non-glass containers!

Cash donations are also very much appreciated. For every $1 that is donated, the Food Bank is able to provide $5 worth of food. You may make checks payable to: Food Bank for Larimer County.

Great Ways to Give Back This Holiday Season

The holiday season is quickly approaching, but not everyone is fortunate enough to celebrate comfortably. For many people and families, the holidays can be a difficult time of the year as they navigate celebrating the holidays and keeping their family finances afloat. Here are some great ways to give back this holiday season!

  1. Donate to a Local Cause

Around 13 million children in America live in poverty and many will receive few or no toys this holiday season. Purchasing toys for children in need can boost their self-esteem and have a positive influence on their lives. We support an incredible organization called Serve 6.8. This is a nonprofit organization that specializes in mobilizing, resourcing, and connecting the local church to care for vulnerable people in Northern Colorado. We will have gift trees again this year at our Windsor locations. Please stop in to support this initiative!

  1. Volunteer at Your Local Food Bank

According to Feeding America, more than 48 million Americans live in food-insecure households, meaning that they do not have enough access to a healthy amount of nutritious food. You can help serve these struggling families and senior citizens in need of food by volunteering at a local soup kitchen. Learn more about this opportunity on either the Food Bank for Larimer County website or on the Weld County Food Bank Website.

  1. Put Together Care Kits for the Homeless

Buy some bags and pick out practical and fun items to put in them. Some ideas include granola bars, water bottles, toothpaste and warm gloves or socks. Keep the care kits in your car, and hand them out to homeless people you encounter on your daily commutes.

 

  1. Charity 5Ks and Fun Runs

There are a lot of great holiday-themed 5Ks in Northern Colorado to participate in and running for charity is always a good—and healthy—idea. Check out all of the 5K races happening around Colorado and find one near you!

 

  1. Donate Canned Goods

Food Shelters are always in need of extra food around the holidays. Go to the grocery store or set up a canned food drive in your community to help donate cans of non-perishable foods to your local food bank.

At Points West Community Bank, we love giving back and participate in many different events throughout the year. We especially like to participate in events around the holidays. Here are some of the events we participate in. We encourage you to participate as well if you are able!

Points West Community Bank Donates $1,000 to Haxtun United Methodist Church and University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institute

Points West Community Bank presented Haxtun United Methodist Church and University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institute with a $1,000 donation. 

“Not only did we want to give back to our community, but also the organizations near and dear to PWCB customers,” said Mark Brase, Front Range President of Points West Community Bank. “By allowing our customers to select the organizations we donated to, we were able to involve customers inside and outside the bank.”

During the 2018 holiday season, Points West Community Bank customers nominated local organizations to receive a $1,000 donation. Along with the organization’s basic information, each nominator explained why PWCB should donate to the nominated organization.

 

The Haxtun United Methodist Church nominator wrote, “the Haxtun United Methodist Church does so many things for so many people. Whether it be the Thanksgiving meal at the community center, Retread Threads, or the community food basket, the Church is there to support our community. Pastor Jeri has been an extraordinary part of the Church, and with her leadership, it has become a shining light in so many people’s lives.” Learn more about The Haxtun United Methodist Church

 

University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institute

“This local organization (University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institute) provides much-needed rehab services to cancer patients. I have benefited from their help and believe they do amazing research to show the benefits of physical activity for cancer patients who could be in any stage of treatment,” said the University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institue’s nominator.
