Thank You, Volunteers,
For Creating an EPIC Day of Service!

On May 18, 2024, Rotarians and community members from across 10 states and 6 countries came together on one EPIC Day of Service to make a world of difference in their communities, delivering meaningful change in our world and in ourselves!

Here's a look at our 2024 Colorado projects.

Englewood Rotary Club is Partnering with Denver Metro South Rotary Club!

It is our mission to serve a minimum of 1,000 children through the EPIC Day of Service. We will be packing 1,000 backpacks with food for students who struggle with food insecurity. The Backpack Society provides food to kids on weekends and school breaks when they don’t have access to food at school.

In addition to packing the backpacks, we will be assisting the Backpack Society with any needs they have inside their Food Pantry like sorting food, stocking shelves, packing bins, etc.

There may also be opportunities for us to pack Birthday Boxes, Family Boxes, Crisis Boxes, and design hand-made birthday cards.

Food donations will also be accepted.

The Backpack Society currently supports 48 schools in the Douglas County and Littleton School Districts, and they are currently opening support to Englewood Schools.

The Backpack Society is a 100% Community supported non-profit located at 213 W. County Line Road, Highlands Ranch, CO 80129.
