THE COLORADO SELECT HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE: BATTLE OF THE CANS!
In addition to building hunger awareness in our community, the annual Holiday Food Drive helps bring in much needed food donations to the Action Center who provides assistance to more than 28,000 Jefferson County residents and the homeless. As this is the sixth year The Colorado Select will participate in holding a Holiday Food Drive to benefit the community and this amazing cause, we’ve decided to up the ante by creating a competition amongst our Power Play Pal aligned teams!
