Charity relocates after roof collapse damages sprinkler and floods food stockpile

DENVER - A Denver charity has a new facility following a roof collapse that damaged a sprinkler system and flooded its food stockpile.

Kids Against Hunger Denver kept its stockpile in the Agape Building at 1690 S. Chambers Rd. Part of the roof of that building collapsed on March 9.

"The roof collapse broke a fire sprinkler pipe and flooded the building with about 5 inches of water which all ran down into the basement," charity president Kenward Bradley wrote in an email to 7NEWS.

Three days after the collapse, 7NEWS reported on the charity's struggle to salvage what food it could. The next day, Bradley says he received a call from a manager of Denver Inner City Parish offering warehouse space.

Bradley says his charity has relocated to 2830 S. Zuni St. in Englewood and will next be packing meals for Colorado's hungry on Saturday, April 12 from 10 a.m. to noon.

Most of the food that was in the old warehouse when the roof collapsed was salvageable. It was donated in bulk to Nation to Nation Ministries for eventual delivery to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota.
