Colorado Mountain Express’s Fill the Van, now in its 20th year, is Saturday, Nov. 18. On this day, CME collects non-perishable food and gift cards from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at nine locations in the I-70 Mountain Corridor.
The food will go to three non-profit local food banks. These include Family and Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC) in Summit County, Salvation Army of the Vail Valley, and Lift Up! in Roaring Fork Valley. Cash and gift cards are also accepted at each location. Money collected will be used to purchase perishable food and additional food later in the year when the need is greater and the shelves are not as full.
To volunteer for a three hour shift, please email Claire Christensen, CChristensen@ridecme.com
