Denver, CO - As snow blankets the metro area after a month in which Americans gathered together to give thanks, no one is more thankful than the food banks served by 9Cares Colorado Shares. Thanks especially to the generosity of shoppers at major partner, King Soopers, the 9Cares Winter Food Drive raised a record-breaking $276,222, a staggering 109% increase from last year's previous record. Add that to the record-breaking total from the 2011 9Cares Summer Drive of more than $157,000, and the numbers become even more impressive. Coloradans gave (and gave and GAVE!) 9Cares Colorado Shares more than $433,000!
