Prudential Colorado Properties hosts food drive

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado – Prudential Colorado Properties is collecting canned goods on Saturdays in December to benefit the Vail Valley Salvation Army. For three consecutive weekends, Prudential Colorado Properties brokers will be collecting food to donate to the Vail Valley Salvation Army.

“People in our community are very generous. There is a real willingness to help those in need. Shoppers bring out large bags filled with canned goods to donate to the food drive, and this year was bigger than in previous years. We want to thank our community for their help and support of this worthy cause,” said Joy Ortiz, a Prudential Colorado Properties broker who volunteered for the food drive.

Thanks to the generosity of our community, food donations Nov. 26 resulted in several 20-gallon boxes filled with food donated to the Salvation Army. This year, Prudential Colorado Properties hopes to exceed last year’s donations. All food that is collected during the drive is delivered to the Salvation Army’s Holiday House.

The Prudential Colorado Properties annual food drive was started in 2007, and with its success will continue each holiday season.

“There is a real need in our community, and we are pleased to support the Vail Valley Salvation Army,” said Michael Slevin, vice president of Prudential Colorado Properties
