Denver Post Season to Share grants totaling $2.3 million will aid local nonprofits providing help to low-income children, families and adults.
On Wednesday 51 metro-area organizations will be presented checks at a reception at The Denver Post building, 101 W. Colfax Ave.
Season to Share is a McCormick Foundation Fund. More than $1.5 million was contributed by over 4,500 donors during the 2016-17 Season To Share campaign. Every dollar donated was matched at 50 percent by the McCormick Foundation, for an additional $766,400.
“Thanks to the kindness and generosity of so many, The Denver Post Season To Share continues to make a vast impact in metro Denver through its support of nonprofit organizations addressing the vital needs in our community,” said Mac Tully, publisher and CEO of The Denver Post. “We are proud to support these direct-service programs as well as to invest in systems working to resolve the issues that impact thousands of families and individuals.”
Volunteers work Saturday to package fruit baskets to give away during the holiday season. The Basket of Joy program has been going for 20 years and has distributed 125,000 baskets. It is supported by Season to Share.
The largest gift this season was made by the MDC Richmond American Homes Foundation. The second-largest gift came from Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation.
