Big O Tires Hosts Holiday Canned Food Drive to Benefit the Food Bank for Larimer County
The three Big O Tires locations in northern Colorado invite the community to participate in their annual holiday canned food drive to benefit the Food Bank for Larimer County. The food drive will take place from Nov. 26 – Dec. 20.
“At Big O Tires, our community comes first,” said Jim Lautzenheiser, owner of Big O Tires’ Fort Collins locations. “The winter can be a very difficult time of year for struggling families, and we are happy to unite our customers to support this important cause.”
The Food Bank for Larimer County is a nonprofit organization in Fort Collins that operates on the principle that no one should be hungry. Each year, the Food Bank provides food for more than 37,500 individuals in need through its community partnerships and hunger-relief programs. More information may be found at foodbanklarimer.org.
The 10 most wanted food items are canned meat or tuna, canned fruit, canned soup or stew, peanut butter, canned vegetables, corn, green beans, fruit juice, pasta or mac & cheese and rice.
