The staff team at the Coloradoan has been making headlines lately for their support of United Way of Larimer County. The group of 70 employees is on track to exceed their workplace campaign goal by nearly $5,000. In addition to having more than 65 percent of their employees giving to United Way, the organization also hosted two incredible fundraising events this summer.
The first was their Fifth Annual Community Shred-A-Thon Event sponsored by Eye Center of Northern Colorado, which was held on Saturday, July 11. As a part of the event, Access Information Management donated their services, destroying sensitive documents in exchange for a donation to benefit United Way of Larimer County. More than 20 United Way and Coloradoan volunteers assisted members of the public who dropped off materials to be shredded, generating more than $5,000 for United Way.
Just a few days later, on July 23 the Coloradoan teamed up with The Group, Inc. to host the inaugural Food Truck Festival. Hundreds of people from all across the community gathered in a family-friendly environment to enjoy delicious food and raise money for United Way of Larimer County. The event featured 16 food trucks from around Northern Colorado and raised more than $5,000 in donations for United Way.
This campaign is no stranger to success. Last year, the Fort Collins Coloradoan was named Campaign of the Year for their support of United Way through their employee giving campaign. Over the course of the last 10 years, the Coloradoan has generated more than $200,000 to help local children and families succeed in school, work and life.
