How can I update my mailing preferences?​

Our mailings are one of the ways we report back to our donors about the lives changed because of their support, and they are an important way we receive gifts from our supporters. Often, these mailers serve as a reminder that we need our supporter’s help throughout the year, and without them, we would be unable to continue providing food, shelter and life-changing programs to people in need.

If you want to reduce or change the number of mailings you receive, we’re happy to help. Simply call us at 303.297.1815 or click the button below to update your mail preferences. Any change will take 8-12 weeks to take effect.
