WE GIVE BACK
Our core values guide everything we do as a company as we fulfill our mission and plan for the future. Driven by the axiom “To whom much is given, much is required,” in 2014 we added “We give back” as our sixth core value and formed The CE Shop Foundation. Today the Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that has provided food for over 30,000 hungry children thanks to generous donations by The CE Shop students and partners.
OUR MISSION IS TO
COMBAT CHILDHOOD HUNGER
Over 30 million children across the United States participate in reduced or no-cost school lunch programs, and many of them go without food on the weekends. The CE Shop Foundation is committed to reducing that number, and we make a difference through backpack programs. These programs are administered in cooperation with elementary schools and local food banks to ensure that young children have enough food to eat when they’re away from school.
We’ve partnered with Food for Thought a local non-profit, to collect funds for school-aged backpack programs in Denver, Colorado. Our backpacks helps children get the nutritious food they need over the course of a weekend. All donations to The CE Shop Foundation go to hungry children in the Denver region.
SUPPORTING OUR FOUNDATION AND THE BACKPACK PROGRAM IS EASY
You can choose to donate 1, 2, or 3 backpacks of food for children in our community. Look for the backpack at checkout to make a donation.
You can also support our annual fundraising effort, Bike for Backpacks. For more information on The CE Shop Foundation or the backpack program, contact Wynter Johnson at Wynter@TheCEShop.com.
BIKE FOR BACKPACKS
Each year, The CE Shop Foundation embarks on an annual bike ride under the team name Bike for Backpacks to fundraise for our cause. Most recently, the Bike for Backpacks team participated in the Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival to help support Food For Thought.
Join the Bike for Backpacks team at next year’s Elephant Rock Cycling Festival on June 2nd, 2019. Ride registration will begin in early 2019, and in the meantime you can donate to The CE Shop Foundation and make a big difference with even just a small donation. One $4 donation will feed a family of four for an entire weekend.
