Thank you so much, Gilpin Community, for donating so much to our food pantry. If you still want to give, we take donations 24/7 between the two front doors of the new pantry location (former Public Health modular). Also you can donate money, we have a drop box between the two front doors at the Justice Center and another in the foyer at our new Human Services location at 15193 Hwy 119 (across from the transfer station) or you can mail to 15193 Highway 119, Black Hawk, CO 80422. Checks can be made out to Gilpin Food Pantry.

If you need food, we have pantry day every Thursday from 1:30-3:45 at the former Public Health modular. We have implemented a shopping format which allows you to select those items you'd like most. Please wait in your vehicle until we open the pantry at 1:30, bring your reusable shopping bags and masks are required! Also, please continue to socially distance and thank you for your patience and respect!

THANK YOU!!! #gilpinstrong
