Crestone Food Bank has a new location
CRESTONE — The Food Bank in Crestone is moving to a new location. The food bank will be moving to 67487 County Road T.
Recently 11 volunteers held a painting party to repair and give the walls of the new building a fresh coat of paint and fresh look.
The new space for the food bank will be next to the Baca Grande Library on County Road T. Along with the painting there are a few more repairs before the Bank can open completely.
After painting the new space, a new floor will have to be laid before any refrigerator or freezer units can be brought in for food storage. The community is seeking vinyl planks but does have some vinyl planks to begin the process of the flooring and finish the project. Lead Volunteer Joe Eskew hopes to finish the entire job before the end of the month.
For people who are registered, as registration cut off on Oct. 18, the food bank will be hosting the Thanksgiving box giveaway. This will take place in the parking lot between the new location and Baca Grande Library on Nov. 18 at 1 p.m.
The food bank requests volunteers for the day they open their doors, details and the time and date when they will open will be announced soon. For more information on the opening of the new food bank, contact Courtney Carag at 720-663-7194 or stop by the library and speak with Eden Elderberry.
