For the fifth 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. In 2017, donations exceeded his goal of 1,000 pounds by almost 40 percent, and more than doubled the previous year’s amount.
“Last year I received 1,387 pounds of food—which was tremendous—and this year I’m shooting for over 1,500 pounds of food,” Ingles said.
Ingles’ work has captured the attention of local media outlets.
