APABA HOLIDAY FOOD BASKET PROGRAM: DONATIONS COLLECTED UNTIL DECEMBER 31

Each year, APABA Colorado partners with the Asian Pacific Development Center (APDC) to provide food baskets to more than 500 low income and underprivileged Asian and refugee families during the holiday season.

We encourage members to make a donation to the food basket program through the Colorado Gives website. But wait, there's more! If you make a donation on Colorado Gives Day on December 5th, you will also take advantage of the Colorado Gives Day $1 million Incentive Fund (learn more here). Donors also have the option of designating how the donations are to be used on the website.

APABA Foundation will match members contributions, with the first $5,000 raised (i.e. $2,500 from members and $2,500 from the Foundation) going towards the food basket program at APDC and the remainder going to APDC's community garden fund.

We will collect donations until December 31, 2017. If you would like to volunteer to hand out food baskets to APDC clients (at a date in January 2018), please email Sumi Lee at sumi.lee@usbank.com.
