Elephant Revival, Chadwick Stokes & Calling All Crows invite you to...
Before their headlining show at The Ogden Theatre, join Elephant Revival and Chadwick Stokes for a pre-show Calling All Crows service project in Denver! Volunteers will spend the afternoon addressing hunger in the Mile High City as they roll up their sleeves to serve with Metro CareRing and the Food Bank of the Rockies.
Space for Calling All Crows events is limited and a $5 non-refundable donation is required to help support the work of our non-profit partners and to reserve your spot at the project. Our partner musicians make every effort to attend pre-show service projects, as their travel and production schedules allow. In the case that they cannot attend, volunteers will be invited to participate in a post-show photo opportunity (ticket to the show not included).
Metro CareRing is a hunger relief organization that operates one of the largest food pantries in Denver. Last year, Metro CareRing provided 148,129 hunger relief and self-sufficiency services to low-income and homeless individuals, offering food, nutrition and healthy living education, utility and transportation assistance, employment readiness programs, and identification documents.
Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) is the largest private hunger-relief organization in the state of Colorado. Since 1978, FBR has provided nearly 431 million pounds of food to its member agencies, translating to more than 336 million meals for people in need. Last year, FBR distributed 39.4 million pounds of food, enough to provide 84,000 meals each day to children, seniors and families in need.
Calling All Crows partners with musicians and fans to create change through hands-on service and activism. Founded in 2008 by musician Chad Stokes (Dispatch, State Radio) and tour manager Sybil Gallagher, Calling All Crows has raised over $250,000 to empower women in Sudan and Afghanistan and invested more than 17,000 hours of service in local communities across North America and Europe.
