Big O Tires of Loveland, Fort Collins and Greeley Join to Host Holiday Canned Food Drive to Benefit Local Food Banks

Donors are entered for a chance to win a new set of tires!

For the last 11 years Big O Tires of Loveland has held its Holiday Canned Food Drive to help those in need in our community. The need is more important than ever, as many in our community have found themselves in financial distress under the pandemic. To help bring in more donations, all Big O Tires locations in Fort Collins and Greeley are joining the effort! Each location is inviting the community to participate in the Holiday Canned Food Drive by bringing in food donations to benefit the Food Bank for Larimer County and the Weld Food Bank through December 23, 2021.

“We hope this drive will help some of our community’s most vulnerable members,” said Owner of Big O Tires of Loveland, Dana Foote. “Our goal is to collect enough non-perishable food items to fill an entire tire truck.”

As an incentive, anyone who brings in a donation will be entered for a chance to win a set of tires valued at $750. (There will be one winner from all five locations.)

Food donations should be boxed or canned and can be dropped off at either of the Big O Tires locations during their business hours.
