Boulder County is one of the wealthiest counties in the nation, yet tens of thousands of people live below the federal poverty level. When fixed incomes don’t meet a need or emergency situations arise, greater Longmont residents need a hand-up to prevent homelessness, maintain work and performance in schools, and enhance family and individual potential. The OUR Center has created a welcoming, supportive and inclusive place for greater Longmont residents to seek an array of services to regain or begin their road to self-sufficiency.
We will be serving lunch to about 100 of The OUR Center’s clients. For this volunteer event, we are in charge of everything – planning the menu, buying the groceries, cooking the food, serving the meal, and cleaning up the kitchen.
