LAKEWOOD, Colo. — On the Action Center's website, the numbers keep growing. More than 2 million pounds of food distributed and more than 22,000 households helped.
The nonprofit's mission has stayed the same during the pandemic, but they have made changes in how they do their work.
Pam Brier is the executive director of the Action Center.
"We moved all of our operations outdoors or online. They drive through every day. We're seeing over 200 households a day come through for food," she said. "We're providing huge amounts of rental assistance throughout the county because COVID has really created a huge economic crisis for so many individuals. Folks are finding themselves in really precarious places and the Action Center has been able to stay open and be here for those in need in the community throughout COVID."
