FILL THE VANS
Colorado Mountain Express and Public Safety’s major annual food drive that replenishes our pantries takes place on Saturday, November 18. You will find Colorado Mountain Express’ vans outside most of the grocery stores in the Vail Valley.
This is a great opportunity for you to buy as little as a can of food to a whole cart to help us provide food for those in need in our valley.

We need bell-ringers from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., in two hour shifts, at City Markets in Vail, Avon, and Eagle; Safeway, Village Market, Wal-Mart, and Ridley’s Family Market in Gypsum (from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. only at this location.)
