Ground Breaking For The New Building
Progress Report

   The soft ground breaking was held on Friday, November 21st at 2:00 p.m. Bob Powers has graciously volunteered to manage the project for the Task Force. He will be very busy spending his days at the work site once the project begins. The new building boasts a great new floor plan and separate private offices for the interviewing of clients. We will be using White Construction of Castle Rock and they will try to hire local sub contractors - keeping jobs in Parker. More Ground Breaking Pictures

   We will continue our Capital Campaign to raise money to pay for the building. We are expecting the building to be completed by the end of summer.

Back Packs Full Of School Supplies
For  Kids In Our Community

     Thanks to the Rotary Community Corp (RCC) for helping those in need. On July 22, 2014 they put together back packs full of school supplies for kids in our community.  We can’t do what we do without groups like the Rotary Club of Parker and the RCC.


Thank You Master Gardeners and Douglas County

   A group of Douglas County Master Gardeners are growing produce for the Parker Task Force in the Hidden Mesa Open Space area. Last year the gardeners delivered nearly 3000 pounds of vegetables and fruits to the Task Force.  The clients really enjoy the garden fresh produce.  Since the Task Force normally buys produce, we save money while providing high quality nutritious food to the clients.  We appreciate and enjoy the partnership with the Master Gardeners.


 


Many Thanks To The Rotarians
For Their On-Going Support And Service!

   With cuts coming to programs designed to help the needy with their utility bills, The Parker Task Force wants to recognize the Rotary Clubs for their support to help provide this vital service to our clients.

   PTF would like to thank the Rotary Club of Parker, Cherry Creek Valley Rotary Club of Parker, Rotary Club of Castle Pines, Rotary Club of Castle Rock and the Rotary Club of Centennial. The clubs held fundraisers that included a peach sale with Joy Lutheran Church and a karaoke contest at Takoda Tavern to raise money to help fund a grant for PTF. We also want to thank IREA for its contribution to this utility grant.

   The Rotary Clubs’ motto “Service Above Self”, exemplifies the spirit of the organization and their ongoing support of PTF. We are grateful for this long and valuable association and so are the many families who come to us for support and assistance.
