Western Colorado Car Dealer Ups the Ante for Community Food Drive
This season spread the holiday cheer and help ensure every family in Western Colorado has food on the table. The crew here at the station will be hitting the streets to raise food and cash donations for the annual Community Challenge, benefiting the Community Food Bank of Grand Junction. A Western Colorado car dealership has added a special touch.
According to the Community Food Bank, "Our mission is to provide nutritious food to individuals and families in crisis." Donations stay local, going to families right here in the valley.
Carville's Auto Mart has stepped up to the plate once again to ensure the food bank is well stocked for the winter. When you donate food or cash at one of our on-site donation stops, Carville's will match your cash donations, up to $1,000.
Think about that for a moment - The Community Food Bank can purchase up to four pounds of food with each dollar. Since they buy in bulk, the Community Food Bank gets incredible deals. Add to that Carville's cash match, and suddenly we're talking about a tremendous amount of food for the food bank. Think about how far your donation could go.
It seems 2016 is going to be the year to beat. Check out the results from three years ago.
This is your chance to help your hard-working friends and neighbors in Western Colorado through some tough times. We'll be out and about a few more times before Christmas. As a matter of fact, our jocks will be out this weekend. Here's the next handful of stops for the 2019 Community Challenge:
- Saturday, November 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Safeway on Horizon Drive
- Saturday, November 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Safeway in the Redlands
- Saturday, December 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Safeway on Patterson and 29 Rd
Please note - your donations stay local! That's right, everything you donate stays right here in Western Colorado. As a matter of fact, crews shuttle the donations during our food stops. In other words, when you donate food items during one of our stops, that food is transported immediately to the Community Food Bank, where it is sorted, and distributed as early as the next day.
Be a part of this annual tradition. Let's make sure every hard-working family in Western Colorado has food on the table this holiday season.
