Nonprofits share resources to help those in need during COVID19 crisis
Salvation Army, COSILoveYou, Pikes Peak United Way and Care and Share Food Bank have all joined forces to create a food box delivery program for Seniors 60+ in our community without transportation.
Care and Share has graciously volunteered to provide all of the food, and all four organizations are able to share resources of transportation and volunteers to increase our collective impact in our community during this challenging time. We realized that vulnerable seniors are going hungry, and our goal is to provide groceries for them during the month of April.
Food Box Delivery Program
During the month of April, if you do not have transportation and you are a Senior 60+, we can deliver a food box to you. Simply call Pikes Peak United Way at 2-1-1 and we will have a food box to you in 24-48 hours. We will leave a food box at your door and ring the doorbell.

COSILoveYou works with churches, businesses, and nonprofits across the Pikes Peak region to bring the resources of the faith community to bear on issues that matter to our community. There is no greater need or opportunity for partnership than in providing solutions around the challenges we’ve all encountered because of COVID-19. This collaborative service of providing food to those who might otherwise go without is exactly what our community needs to see right now: mutual partnership for community lift.
