Fill the Gator | Food Drive | 4Rivers Equipment

Posted on December 4, 2018

The 4Rivers Equipment in Fort Collins, Colorado is hosting the “Fill The Gator” Food Drive this year to support the Food Bank for Larimer County. We are encouraging not only our own employees but everyone in the area to participate by bringing in and dropping off some food items to put in the back of the Gator! Cash donations can be made as well (minimum of $5 increments). You can drop off all donations to the Fort Collins location at 125 John Deere Drive, Fort Collins, CO 80524 from 12/4/2018 until 12/21/2018 during normal business hours. 

Last year, 4Rivers Equipment was able to haul 154 pounds of food to the Larimer County Food Bank – Let’s beat that this year!! We encourage everyone to support this great cause!
