Tim Anderson, owner of Valor Elite Training, presented Food Bank for Larimer County with 1,000 pounds of food and a check for $33,000, surpassing his goal of $10,000! The donations were collected during the ‘Empty Your Pantry Food and Fund Drive’ that ran from February 10 through February 26. The drive was used to commemorate the launch of Anderson’s new company, Valor Elite Training, an online physical training and nutrition company, as well as help those in need in the community.

“This is remarkable. Thank you for this incredible donation,” said CEO of the Food Bank for Larimer County, Amy Pezzani. “The $33,000 will secure six semi-trailers of food for our community. For every dollar donated, we can provide two meals to a family in need. This donation equates to 66,000 meals. And with the addition of the 1,000 pounds of food also donated, that’s another 834 meals. We are thankful to Valor Elite Training for their dedication to those in need of nutritious food in our community and very thankful to i25Kia for stepping up to support Tim and his team with a $10,000 matching grant.”

The event was co-sponsored by i25Kia who initially committed to providing a $5,000 matching grant but raised it to $10,000 midway through the event. The company matched every dollar donated, up to $10,000.

Mantooth Marketing & Events also served as a co-sponsor of the drive. “We are so excited to see Tim personally succeed with his new company and succeed in helping those in need in our community with this drive,” said Owner of Mantooth Marketing & Events, Connie Hanrahan.
