Reach For Peace Picnic


Reach For Peace

Our Reach 4 Peace Picnic is a day when local businesses and organizations come out and educate the community about their products, programs and services. Everyone is welcome and invited to free food, face painting, bounce houses, pony rides, haircuts, and each year, something more. It is a free community event that brings the community together for one day of family fun. We have booths and activities set up so it’s a day of learning and fun filled activities for the whole family. Every year we invite other local non-profits so they can distribute helpful information about their organizations. We take a lot of pride in our Reach 4 Peace Picnic. Our event’s mission is to promote community awareness and community togetherness. We also invite health care specialist to provide free screenings for the youth and adults. During our event, we also recognize three outstanding men with the “Father of the Year” award. Fathers are hardly ever recognized, so we take that opportunity to show that someone sees their contributions and appreciates what they do for their families and the community. With the “Father of the Year” awards, we want to show our youth that there are men – fathers – who are on a positive path. Young people can look up to these men as mentors and as role models in the community. During our 2017 10th annual event, hosted on Father’s Day, Denver City Mayor Michael Hancock delivered a proclamation recognizing our work. At the time, we had several nonprofit booths come out and educate our community members about what free services were available to them. Your support will help us reach more people this year and we’re counting on generous donors like you to help change our community
