“20,000 Meals Provided To Food Bank of the Rockies From Denver Pavilions’ Holiday Carousel
The Donation Comes At Critical Time As The Food Bank Has Experienced Increased Demand From the Government Shutdown
DENVER, Denver Pavilions’ is again providing a donation of $5,000 which allows the Food Bank of the Rockies to provide 20,000 meals for families in need. The donation was generated from ride revenue from Denver Pavilions’ Holiday Carousel. The 30′ carousel, located in the heart of downtown Denver on Glenarm Place, ran December 14, 2018 through January 2, 2019. The carousel, now in its fifth year, has become a holiday tradition in Downtown Denver.
The Food Bank of the Rockies serves a critical function for the community. This donation will assist with replenishing stock that was partially depleted due to assisting furloughed federal government employees during the 35 day government shutdown.
“Not only does the Denver Pavilions’ Holiday Carousel draw local and out-of-town visitors to the 16th Street Mall to help stimulate the downtown economy, but it also helps feed those in need in our community. This is a critically important cause at a critically important time,” states Mark Sidell, president of Gart Properties which owns the Denver Pavilions in conjunction with Rifkin Family Investment Company and MetLife.
“We’re so grateful for this long and generous partnership with Denver Pavilions’ Holiday Carousel. Thanks to their efforts, this gift will help us provide 20,000 meals and allow hungry families to thrive. One in 10 people in Colorado struggle with hunger and 1 in 6 Colorado kids don’t always know where they’ll find their next meal. It’s heartwarming to know a carousel that brings such holiday joy will also bring nourishing food to those in desperate need,” said Erin Pulling, Food Bank of the Rockies’ president and CEO.
The Food Bank of The Rockies is in further need of donations. If you would like to donate, please visit their website at please visit www.foodbankrockies.org. “
