Located in Aurora, CO, the Village Exchange Center feeds refugees from the greater Denver metro area. One of our own members, Peter Vercio who cares for up to one thousand immigrant and refugee families per week in Aurora. With Coronavirus hitting hard, many immigrant students are no longer attending the schools where they receive healthy meals every day, and job opportunities for parents are lacking. Peter has asked that Boulder Church help out with donations for their weekly food drive to provide much-needed resources.
