FISH Family Fun Day

Our Family Fun Day last month was a blast! We were thrilled to have so many partner resource organizations join us and to see so many families come celebrate with us! We had games, storytime with the Broomfield Library, drawings for cool prizes, delicious Kona Ice, and more! We were also able to have a FREE COVID-19 vaccine clinic through Broomfield Public Health! Thank you to everyone who came and to our partner organizations who participated. We look forward to having more events like this in the future.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors Results

We want to give a huge thank you to our 2021 team champions and to everyone who contributed to our Neighbors Helping Neighbors campaign this summer. With your support, we raised $26,766 to prevent hunger and homelessness here in Broomfield!
