Vail Daily letter: Wonderful fundraiser

Toni Berns and the board of directors Food Rescue Express
Vail, CO Colorado

Food Rescue Express would like to say thank you Restaurant Kelly Liken (Kelly, Rick, staff and kitchen) for a wonderful fundraiser you did for Food for Kids Backpack Program. Thank you to K. Furtado Wines and Crazy Mountain Brewery for your sponorship. Thank you Vail Daily and Vail Mountaineer for your help.

A big thank you to all the people who attended and helped make it a huge success. Since we started the program (in its second year), we now have a total of six elementary schools here in the county. Also, since the first week of school in September through Dec. 10, we have fed 617 kids, which is equivalent to 3,702 meals, and we have five more months of school and then start summer school.

If you would like to help, there are two options – you can do a food drive and we will provide a shopping list of certain items and you can call us and we will pick it. We also need these items all year ’round. Our phone number is 970-926-6183, or you can e-mail us at The second option is to sponsor a child for one month, and the cost is $22.50. Or, if you would like to sponsor a child for one school year, the cost is $177. You can send a check to Food Rescue Express, Box 2874, Edwards, CO 81632. We are a nonprofit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. If you would like to visit us on our website, our address is

Thank you all for supporting us and we wish you a happy holiday and New Year.
