Take a look at our year-end fundraising invitation!
2019 ROP Year-End Fundraising Letter
Thank you for considering ROP in your charitable year-end giving!
p.s. Remember, ROP’s Join the Team campaign ends on Sunday, October 26th with an Open House from 2 to 4 p.m. There is no Bronco game that day. So for those of you needing something to do in lieu of watching your favorite sports team, I encourage you to come to our Open House and visit your favorite (?) ministry team. (well, maybe, favorite ministry team serving the needy in northwest Aurora :-).
Over the last 6 years, ROP’s services to our community have increased exponentially. The Food Bank serves twice as many people as it did 6 years ago, but the number of people served by our other programs has increased by almost 12 times. At the same time, our staff and regular volunteers have increase by just 13%, and ROP’s operating expenses have increased by 49% with much of that increase coming from uncontrollable insurance and utility expenses. Truly, I feel like we are doing our best to be good stewards of the resources God has provided to us through His people.
We thank God for His provision and the reality that after more than 6 years, ROP is not only still in business, but the impact of our ministry has increased many fold. We continue to trust Him for the provision of volunteers and finances that will allow our ministry to be sustained and grow. One way we give God room to do that is through our annual Join the Team campaign.

Your support of ROP allows us reach out to those in need of food, education, community, counseling, and a restored life through Christ.Please also keep in mind that an anonymous donor has supported “Join the Team” by making a matching grant of $10,000. Help us release these funds and score twice as many points by making a donation and designating “Join the Team Match” on your check or in the comment box for on-line donations.
Thank you for responding by the end of this year’s campaign – October 26th, the date of ROP’s Open House – with your gift. To learn more about the Open House, ways to get involved or make a donations, please click on this link to the Join the Team website.

Many Great Reasons to Participat
e in Pedal 4A Purpose 2014
- The next 50 people (12 years of age and older) to register will receive a piece of head gear from Headsweats for free (value $20).
- The grand prize has been raised from $500 to $1,000 toward the purchase of a bike from Schwab Cycles. Fundraisers will get one ticket in the grand prize drawing plus a $20 gift certificate from Wheatridge Cyclery for each $250 raised.
- Every rider will receive a P4AP water bottle and t-shirt and will be eligible to win some awesome door prizes.
- P4AP provides a great opportunity to get some exercise and enjoy a supported ride with family and friends.
- P4AP also offers the chance to donate used bikes for the benefit of underprivileged kids in the city. (We are partnering again this year with Recycled Bicycles.)
- But, of course, the best reason to participate in Pedal 4A Purpose 2014 is because it supports ROP’s efforts to serve the very disadvantaged families and individuals living along the Colfax corridor in northwest Aurora and East Denver.
Hope to see you on June 7th at Denver Seminary!
