Roll Out the Barrels — April 24–May 5

The DBA Community Action Network (CAN) is proud to sponsor the seventh annual “Roll Out the Barrels” food drive, April 24–May 5.

Last year, CAN raised more than $8,000 and was able to serve approximately 35,000 meals. CAN would like to do even more this year for the Food Bank of the Rockies.

The DBA’s CAN Committee will drop off a barrel at your firm or office. Just fill it with non-perishable food items (or cash donations) and the committee will collect it. There will be a donation competition by firm size (1–20, 21–60, 61–100, 101–150 and 151+ employees). If you’d like to participate, contact Aaron Bradford at (303) 874-3434.
