Volleyball Club Donates 3,500 Pounds of Food

Generous Coloradans organize and donate food to us through food drives all year round. SUV’s will pull up to our front office and unload box after box of food.  A family and their children will bring a bag of food they picked out at the grocery store. Or a company will organize a drive that produces thousands of pounds of food and our trucks will go out and pick it up. Folks never quite know how much food will be collected when they organize a drive, so we love seeing the results of people’s hard work and creativity. Example…the Juggernaut Volleyball Club out of Wheat Ridge!

This competitive volleyball group has 15 teams, 149 players and approximately 20 coaches/staff members. This year the club’s Parent Advisory Committee suggested that the club take part in community service. One member mentioned doing a food drive for us and the idea started taking shape quickly. The drive ran from April 9-April 21. The first week the player groups were encouraged to organized team competitions. During those two weeks, players would arrive with food, check in for weigh in and collection. During the two weeks they sent email updates to all families, added posts on Facebook and posted team status information throughout the club. They’re a competitive club so adding competition into the mix was a motivator!

We’re excited to report that this group called us a couple weeks back, asking if we could send a truck out to pick up the food collected. They filled up an entire garage, bringing their poundage total to approximately 3,500 pounds! We were thrilled with the success of this first time food drive. It’s amazing what can be accomplished when our community works together. THANKS for all your hard work Juggernaut Volleyball Club!
