For the fourth consecutive year, EPC Chaplain Endorser Mark Ingles has leveraged his home Christmas display to benefit the Care and Share Food Bank of Southern Colorado. In 2016, he collected approximately 650 pounds of canned and dry goods from people who stopped in front of his house in Colorado Springs, Colo., to view the display. His goal this year is 1,000 pounds.
“It’s an opportunity to give back to the community,” Ingles said. “More than just the beauty of seeing the display and adding that to people’s season of Christmas; it’s a tangible way of being able to have people drop off food. They’re giving to an incredibly wonderful cause.”
KOAA News 5 in Colorado Springs—the region’s highest-rated newscast—broadcast a 2-minute feature on Ingles’ efforts on December 12. The station posted a separate, 3-minute followup story on their Facebook page on December 16, in which Ingles shared that he was already halfway to the donation goal.
