Additionally, this Friday through Sunday we will be taking canned food donations in our lobby for the Community Food Share in Niwot, CO which serves the area which has been hit hardest by this catastrophe. The CFS is requesting the following items the most:canned fruit, 100% fruit juice, cold & hot cereal, canned tuna/fish and meat, canned chili and stew,pasta sauce and peanut butter. To ease in this process, we ask that no household items or clothing be dropped off at this time.

As a Boulder resident I have witnessed the devastation and the tremendous response of the community pulling together to help one another. Our Alamo community wants to do what we can to help as well.”
