Cans Around the Oval Results

Thanks to all of you whose contributions of non-perishable food and/or monetary donations helped make Cans Around the Oval 2014 a SUCCESS. The efforts of the Department of Atmospheric Science and CIRA raised 248 pounds of food and $565 for the Food Bank of Larimer County. This results in a total impact of 2,508 pounds! I believe we set a record in donations from ATS/CIRA and exceeded our expectations and goals. THANK YOU! Every contribution makes a difference for our neighbors, friends, and colleagues in need.

CSU, together with the Larimer County community, raised 47,470 lbs. of food and $46,743! This translates to a total impact of 186,974 lbs. of food collected. Congratulations on a job well done by everyone involved!
