Food bank needs financial angels

By Press Release

The Surface Creek Community Services, known to most people in the community as the Cedaredge Food Bank, is already planning how to provide Christmas dinners for the disadvantaged friends and neighbors in our community.

The food bank was blessed with a gracious community to assist with monetary funds to cover the expense of distributing over 215 boxes last year. Each box costs approximately $38. The food bank volunteers are asking the community to help meet this year's need.

All donations for the Christmas project should be made out to Surface Creek Community Services and specifically marked for the "Christmas Dinner Boxes."

The food bank is open Monday through Friday, 9-11 a.m., and Thursdays from noon to 3 p.m. for anyone to drop off their donations at those times.

The mailing address is:Surface Creek Community Services, P.O. Box 963, Cedaredge CO 81413. The food bank phone number is 970-856-1125.

The food bank has a Facebook page and can be reached by email at cedaredgefoodbank@
