Faculty, staff and students can now register their group, department or organization for the eighth annual Cans to Candelaria campus-wide food/cash drive competition to benefit the Weld Food Bank. See details. While all non-perishable food items and cash donations are appreciated, some food items are in higher demand than others, including:
Cash donations help the Weld Food Bank purchase needed items and pay for transportation to bring donated food to Greeley from places throughout the country.
For groups collecting money, each $1 will count as the equivalent of six pounds of food for the final tally.
Registration forms and information about challenging other groups or organizing a food drive is available at the Cans to Candelaria website.
