Benefits in Action is a local non-profit that has been serving the Colorado community for the past 8 years. They offer services to all ages regarding healthcare and mental wellness. Their mission is to help individuals better understand, access, and utilize food- and health-related benefits with the goal of enhancing food security, health, and well-being. Year round they have many opportunities for volunteers to offer support on a variety of areas like community outreach, food delivery, tax preparation and more.

Marketing and Outreach Coordinator Rachel Wise stopped by the studio to share with me the organization’s current initiative. Each year, they strive to meet the community where they are at with holiday meal boxes that include food and a few treats for the holiday season. This year’s event is on December 16th and the goal is to deliver 500 boxes of healthy and fresh shelf stable foods to homes in 4 Denver metro counties. Find out more about this program here. To get involved, you can visit their volunteer portal. The deadline to sign up to volunteer is December 11th 2023.
