This November, our team at Volume Nine participated in a penny drive to benefit the Community Food Share – a nonprofit providing food for local Denver area basic needs agencies as well as free food to families with school age children who are living in poverty.
For two weeks our Denver office was divided into three teams: Pa Pa Pandamonium, Hammer Time Hummingbirds, and Power House Penguins. We battled it out, adding pennies to our own teams’ jars for positive points and silver and dollars to the opposing teams’ for negative points. Things got pretty heated competition wise and team Pa Pa Pandamonium ended up on top!
While the friendly office competition was fun, the real winners were the families helped by the Community Food Share. With all our teams donations and a monetary match from Volume Nine, we were able to donate $604 to CFS in order to bring food to families in the Boulder and Broomfield counties. Community Food Share is able to provide 4 meals for every $1.00 donated to them, that means Volume Nine’s contribution equates to 2,416 meals!
