Century Link Makes a Huge Impact

Century Link recently raised 130,000 pounds of food and more than $400,000 in cash during their national food drive.  Because their donations exceeded the $1 million dollar mark, the match dollars were divided among the beneficiaries of their 2013 food drive across the country.  Food Bank of the Rockies was blessed to be included in that list!  The CenturyLink Foundation committed to matching all food donations at $1.00 per pound and all monetary donations at $6.00 to every $1.00 donated, up to 1 million dollars company wide.

 We're thrilled to announce that the Food Bank of the Rockies received a check from the CenturyLink Foundation in the amount of $27,500!  How outstanding is that?  THANKS to all the employees at Century Link for providing 110,000 meals to our Colorado neighbors in need.  And that's just one small section of the impact you made across the country.  Awesome!
