ACTS Southwest

We believe God planted us in Colorado Springs for a reason. So while we also serve in other countries and contexts around the world, our ACTS team focuses on sharing God’s love right here in southwestern Colorado Springs and beyond.

We partner with Stratton Meadows Elementary, and Meadows Park Community Center

Thank you for your interest in serving! We enjoy finding opportunities to serve our community, you and your family and friends are invited to serve with us! Please contact the Southwest ACTS Coordinator with questions or for more information.

For many children, facing a weekend away from school where meals are provided, can be an unsettling time.

Woodmen Southwest has partnered with Stratton Meadows Elementary to provide ACTS Packs full of food to assist families while their children are not in school. Each week, a team assembles 20 backpacks and delivers them to the school, where children can pick them up and take them home for the weekend. To support this ministry, food donations can be dropped off in any Feeding Families bin.

Here are most needed items for the Backpacks:
  • Goldfish crackers
  • Oyster crackers
  • Saltine crackers
  • Ritz crackers
  • Protein bars
  • Breakfast bars
  • Individual snacks
  • Trail mix
  • Fruit cups or pouches
  • Jelly (plastic bottles)
  • Small jars of Parmesan cheese
  • Juice boxes
  • Oatmeal
  • Tuna packets
  • Canned chili
  • Please also consider providing:
  • Extra backpacks
  • Notes/cards of encouragement for the kids
