This Holiday season, make sure you are giving to charities that are making a real, positive impact on the communities they serve. The Holistic Homestead is a bona-fide 501c3 public charity dedicated to improving health and wellness through education, outreach and advocacy and in 2021 we were busier than ever!
What does my donation do?
- We collaborated with local nonprofit Powering Empathy to bring Emotional Theater to the Gilpin County Elementary with support from the Alan Green Memorial Foundation
- We built out our pay-what-you-can cafe and opened in March serving fresh healthy food on a donation basis! Since March we have served over 160 delicious, organic, plant-based meals. We have also seen the viability of this model take off – most folks “pay it forward”, making the cafe a sustainable resource for everyone!
- Our food pantry has grown, too! Word is getting out and we are consistently serving between 5-8 households every Sunday from 3-4. Folks go home with bags brimming with fresh, organic produce. Since January 2021, we have donated 549 pounds of fresh produce valuing $991.51!
- We successfully put on three Farmers Markets this year, and have secured a partnership with Gilpin County Parks and Recreation to continue and grow our health and wellness focussed community events including the Farmers Markets and Health Fair!
- Our Membership roster has officially topped 200 current, active members! You are in GOOD COMPANY with the Homestead!
- We have logged 866 volunteer hours since January 1st, with 37 volunteers! Our work would not be possible without the tireless dedication of our volunteers – thank you!
