CVC Employees give to Turtle Wing
Turtle Wing Foundation was the recipient of a $200 donation made by the employees of Colorado Valley Communications on January 6. The donation was made in honor of Carl Miller. Mr. Miller volunteers his time during the holiday season to play the role of Santa at many functions. Rather than accepting payment for his services, he simply requests a donation of any amount be made to a favorite charity.
After utilizing Mr. Miller’s services at a company function, Colorado Valley employees had the opportunity to vote for any charitable organization they chose to be the recipient of such donation. Turtle Wing Foundation received an overwhelming majority of the votes. The donation was made through the Colorado Valley Employee Charity Fund, which is made up of voluntary payroll contributions used solely to support local charities. Susie Shank, Turtle Wing Foundation Managing Director, accepted the donation. For more information about Turtle Wing, please visit www.turtlewingfoundation.org.
Outpouring of Support for AMEN Shown at Colorado Valley Communications
A Christmas Food Drive, benefitting the AMEN food pantry took place at Colorado Valley Communications from December 1 through December 17 with an unbelievable outcome! A shopping cart was filled to overflowing with donations from customers and employees alike.
Many customers brought in their non-perishables during the Colorado Valley Communications Holiday Open House. Everyone making a donation of at least three food items received a small token of appreciation. Colorado Valley would like to thank all those who participated in the food drive. It may not seem like a few food items from your pantry make a difference, but when all the donations are put together the results truly are amazing!
Area Ministries for Emergency Needs (AMEN) received a shopping cart full of non-perishable food items from customers and employees of Colorado Valley Communications (CVC). The donation was the result of a Christmas Food Drive hosted by CVC in December 2014.
