American Charities - Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs, CO 80909
Details: American Charities, Inc. is a Colorado based non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation. We are not affiliated to any religious group or any political organization. It is our mission to assist families in need of food and clothing no questions asked . The funds that we raise are directly put to use in the community to help people in need and to keep our facilities operational. We know that most families have a hard time making ends meet. Even with both parents working, after paying for the rent/mortgage, utilities, car loan(s) and insurance, gas, etc.. we barely have enough money for the day to day necessities. Our kids are growing so fast, it seems we have to buy new shoes and clothes every other month. Our Concept: You donate necessary items (clothing, non-perishable foods, diapers, blankets, etc…) to American Charities, Inc. and we distribute it right back to families in need in the community absolutely FREE.

We currently serve 150 families a month. The need is very great in Colorado and unfortunately it will only get worse.

We receive many donations from the following companies and places. Care and Share of Southern Colorado, Panera Bread, Borriello Brothers Pizza, along with other churches and pantries provide food and clothing. Fellowship church provides our space and pays utilities. We have to purchase most of the food from Care and Share at a lower cost. These are just a few of the companies who help our mission to feed the hungry. The Springs Food Pantry has a large clientele and it continues to rise. We are in desperate need of food to provide for the hungry and needy. Since we work completely on donations and the employees all work on a volunteer basis, we do not have any means except donations. We would be very grateful if we could acquire help through your organization. It would be a tremendous blessing and greatly appreciated.
