This week, we at CFI wanted to send a huge congratulations to K+N for winning the Thanks for Giving Food Drive Care Community group event we did with the K+N Seattle Branch. CFI was squarely bested by the super generous K+N Crew but there were truly no losers because together we were able to donate a total of 738 food items and $215.00 cash to our local food bank. Every dollar and item donated matters. Thanks to everyone who was able to participate. We could not have done this without you!
This time of year there is no shortage of worthy charities working hard in our communities to help families and children make it through the Christmas holidays. It is our sincere hope that you will read about our contest and be inspired to find a way to give back or help out those in need. We encourage people to seek out local charities to help families near you with their holiday meals and gifts, but we’ve provided a list of excellent national and international organizations that work year round to provide for people.
As a final note we’d like to send a warm thank you to K+N Seattle (lunch is on us next week), our sincerest appreciation to Tom Hartley and Trina Lobdell for inviting CFI to participate in this great event this year, and a HUGE thanks to CFI’s own Jenny Martin for organizing the CFI donations for this competition. Next year we will be looking for redemption and Jenny will lead us to victory!
