How long does it take to collect 79 tons of food, 8,000 gifts, 4,000 gift boxes, 2,000 rolls of wrapping paper, and 1,500 rolls of tape? All year long for a nonprofit group called SECOR (Southeast Community Outreach). SECOR’s mission is Never turning away a family in need. This outreach is located in Parker and gave $1.5 million worth of toys and gifts to families in need for Christmas! 3,800 children received gifts from Castle Rock to Brighton. In addition to the gifts, each family received two weeks of food. SECOR runs a food bank and assistance program all year long, but really gears up for Christmas. Throughout the year there are many fundraisers including a golf tournament, a Gala (auction and dinner), classic car and motorcycle show, and a chili cook off. SECOR raises money so that they can buy toys, food, and supplies to provide families with gifts under their tree on Christmas day. Toys, clothes, and food are also donated year-round. It takes 800+ volunteers to make someone’s Christmas better! SECOR is a great outreach because it makes a difference in the lives of many. For more information on helping, contact SECOR at 720-842-5621.
