Food Bank of the Rockies received notice of an early Christmas gift this year from our friends at Purina. For their $1 Million in ONE Day campaign, Purina sent out street teams to Denver, New Orleans, Miami and New York on 12/20/10 and gave randomly selected people an opportunity to donate $5,000, in their name, from Purina ONEbeyOnd, to their charity of choice from a list of options.
Food Bank of the Rockies was one of the charities on the list for Denver. FBR was fortunate to receive $35,000 – that’s 140,000 meals for our community!
What a wonderful gesture, Purina – we are so grateful. And a huge thanks to those kind people who selected Food Bank of the Rockies. Talk about a great surprise to end 2010!
