ESM serves over 70,000 people each year in the Pikes Peak region who need food for themselves or their families, or need a shower, or need clothing or laundry services. When you donate to ESM, you ensure that a family can provide for their basic needs without having to choose between food and paying rent, or face a cold winter without warm clothes and blankets. Your support is critical to our mission to restore dignity and encourage self-sufficiency for low-income individuals and people experiencing homelessness.
