Not only was April 1 the kick-off for the Rockies 2011 season, it was also the kick off for the National Letter Carriers Food Drive, which officially takes place at mailboxes around the U.S. on May 14!

A sea of people decked in Rockies purple – a favorite color at FBR too – streamed into Coors Field on this gorgeous spring day. Thanks to Campbell’s Soup, 104.3 The Fan, KS 107.5 and all the other Lincoln Financial Media stations, fans flocked to our booth, exchanged cans and cash for cool t-shirts and fed hope to our community! Volunteers from Campell’s, the National Letter Carriers and several family members helped us collect donations before the game.

It turned out to be a great day for FBR. We collected $1,266.15 in cash and coin = 6,331 lbs and 1,082 lbs of non-perishable food for a grand total of 7,413 pounds. That’s a lot of soup!! Huge thanks go out to everyone who donated food, time and funds!
