Employees with a local energy company helped the Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies prepare for the holiday season.
On Friday morning, Chevron employees volunteered their time to help sort and pack food.
Representatives of Chevron said the need for food is always great, but that's especially true during the holiday season, and that's one of the main reasons the company continues to give to the food bank.
On top of employees helping pack and load food onto the truck, Chevron made a generous donation to the food bank; representatives gave the facility a check for $10,000.
"The food bank hits, you know, impacts lots of people, whereas, we've done food drives before and it's always a small-scale. This way we can connect with, you know, tens of thousands of families versus just a few families," said Leslie Barnes, an operations manager with Chevron.
This is the fourth year in a row Chevron's made a significant donation to the food bank, representatives with the company say they plan to keep the tradition going strong.
