Our Purpose For Helping Our Community!
We're Just Ordinary People
Mission: To provide community outreach, education and basic essentials to individuals in need regardless of their race, gender, religion or sexual orientation.
We are everyday working people trying to make a difference in another persons life. We are not rich, we don’t have a lot, BUT we do have a genuine heart and a passion to help the next person in need.
Formally known as “Ladies Of 5280 Inc” we decided to change the name to reflect really what we do. BE USEFUL BE KIND ...
Be Useful - able to be used for a practical purpose or in several ways.
Be Kind - It’s not our job to judge others, but so worth it to assist another in need
You don’t need much to give someone food or clothing, these are basic essentials that everyone needs to live day by day. With your support and your dedication to make a change WE AS A COMMUNITY CAN COME TOGETHER AND MAKE A MUCH NEEDED DIFFERENCE!
Our Purpose: To stand up and fight for our social justice and equality for our humanity. We should all have the right to be treated equally by our Neighbors, Employers, Government and anyone else who represents us as Citizens. We will provide basic essentials such as food, clothing, hygiene products and resources for anyone in need within the Denver, Metro area and surrounding cities. Soon we hope to take our organization to other parts of the country and provide community outreach to others in need.
Allison Goodwin is an Aurora, CO Native. She studied Business Marketing and Management at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC. Receiving a Bachelors Degree in July 2009. After graduating Allison moved back to Aurora, CO to start a new journey in life. She started Ladies Of 5280 inc originally as a need for basic Marketing and Promotions within the Entertainment industry. After various partnerships and events she discovered there was a more important need within our community. Helping other businesses donate to the less fortunate and other low income families, she knew this was her true calling. The organization was developed in December 2013, the opportunity to really get involved and provide basic needs to others established in December 2015. Due to the lack of funding Allison involved her family, friends and other people around Colorado to help donate new or gently used items like clothes and shoes . She also promotes upcoming donation drives and fundraising information on social media in hopes to bring awareness about getting more people involved with our community. Within the past year Ladies of 5280 provided the community with 10 different drives that helped feed, clothe and provide hygiene products to over 1,000 homeless and low-income families within the Denver-Metro area and surrounding cities like Aurora, CO.
