Spread the Love

Help Commerce City Spread the Love

Spread the love logo Each February the Spread the Love campaign encourages the donation of peanut butter and jelly jars that are then distributed to local food banks. Last year, more than 1,800 jars were collected during the campaign.

According to Hunger Free Colorado, a resource connecting families and individuals to food and nutrition resources, nearly 1 in 6 Colorado households with children report an inability to afford adequate food. Each year there is a need for nonperishable food items at food banks following the holiday season when donations are at the lowest and in the highest demand.

Donate jars of peanut butter and jelly throughout February at one of these drop-off locations:

  • Commerce City Civic Center, 7887 E. 60th Ave.
  • Bison Ridge Recreation Center, 13905 E. 112th Ave.
  • Eagle Pointe Recreation Center and Active Adult Center, 6060 E. Parkway Dr.
