COVID-19: Mountain community joins together to support each other was created by CanyonCourier

In uncertain times, people often come together.

The mountain community is no different. In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, nonprofit organizations and community members throughout Evergreen and Conifer are banding together to provide support to those who need it.

The community has definitely responded to the food needs of the area’s most vulnerable, according to the executive director of Evergreen Christian Outreach.

Mountain Resource Center
Ten thousand pounds of food.

That’s how much Conifer’s Mountain Resource Center estimates it handed out last week. On a typical week, the organization distributes some 2,000 pounds to its regular clients.

NEED FOOD OR WANT TO HELP?
If you need help with food, the Evergreen Christian Outreach food bank is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays. It is located next to Church of the Transfiguration, 27640 Highway 74 on the east end of downtown Evergreen. For more information and to donate, visit evergreenchristianoutreach.org.
