The RV Rascals of Colorado for the past several years have donated a portion of their 50/50 pot to the Larimer County Dept. of Human Services for the Drug Endangered Children’s Task Force for comfort kits for children removed from their homes due to methamphetamine labs. These kits provide the children that are removed from their homes and placed into foster care with new clothes, toiletries and a new toy such as a teddy bear.  They have donated $200 to this ongoing project.

The members of this chapter used money left from their Christmas Family fund to participate in the Relay for Life this year which is to raise money for cancer research.

For the last two years this chapter has collected canned goods for Foothills Gateway Rehab Center. Foothills Gateway, Inc is a facility to coordinate community effort dedicated to challenging and supporting Larimer County citizens with development disabilities to achieve their maximum potential and independence.

They have also donated Christmas gifts for Genny’s Hope, a non-profit agency that works with foster parents to reach out to the children in foster care to help build their self-esteem and dreams for tomorrow.

The Explorer Chapter does several Humanitarian activities each year. They have put on a Christmas Dinner for the families and children of Ronald McDonald House in Omaha for many years. A couple in the chapter dress up as Mr. and Mrs. Santa and talk with the children and the chapter purchases a small gift for each child. They also visit the children that are in the Medical Center.

The members of this chapter have sponsored children to Special Olympics for the past twenty years. The funds are used for the children going to state games.

The chapter members adopt children each year from the Angel Tree (children of parents that are incarcerated) and purchase gifts for the children. They also adopt each Christmas a Salvation Army family of four. They purchase gifts for the children and also give the family gift certificates for food.

Each year, the members bring canned foods to their November meeting to donate to the Food Pantry along with a check for $100 from the chapter.

These are only a few Humanitarian efforts that this chapter does throughout the year.
