Big O Tires of Loveland Hosts Annual Holiday Canned Food Drive
To Benefit the Food Bank for Larimer County
Free oil change and tire rotation voucher with $25+ donation
For the last 10 years Big O Tires of Loveland has held its Holiday Canned Food Drive to help those in need in our community. This year, the drive is more important than ever, as many in our community have found themselves in financial distress under the current pandemic. Big O Tires is inviting the community to participate in their 11th annual Holiday Canned Food Drive to benefit the Food Bank for Larimer County from November 30 through December 23. To date the food drive has collected over 5,000 pounds of food and $5,000 for the Food Bank for Larimer County.
“We hope this drive will help some of our community’s most vulnerable members,” said Owner of Big O Tires of Loveland, Dana Foote. “We are confident that the Loveland community will show up big as they always do to support our neighbors in need.”
Those interested in donating can bring in a $25 check (made out to Food Bank for Larimer County), cash or food donation. Food donations should be boxed or canned and can be dropped off at Big O Tires of Loveland at 2480 North Lincoln Avenue. Business hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed Sunday. The 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.
Big O Tires is offering an incentive for donations. Anyone who brings in a donation valued at $25 or more will receive a voucher for a free oil change and tire rotation valued at $39.99 to be redeemed January 1 through March 31, 2021. (One voucher per person per visit.)
The Food Bank for Larimer County is a private non-profit organization and the only Feeding America clearinghouse for donated food in the county. Every year, they provide food to an estimated 37,500 people in need through community partnerships and hunger-relief programs.
