DENVER, CO – Competing in the inaugural CapTech National Food Fight, the Denver office of CapTech raised $1,050 for Food Bank of the Rockies. The CapTech Food Fight is a friendly rivalry among the consulting firm's eight office locations. The check presentation took place at Food Bank of the Rockies on December 7, 2017.
"It is amazing and humbling to see our organization rally in such spirit to make an impact against hunger," said CapTech Principal Drew Tester. "I'm so proud to see the commitment to community that the Food Fight inspired among Denver CapTechers and across our company."
CapTech's National Food Fight raised over $40,000 for local food banks across the country this year. Over a two week period in November, CapTechers in the Denver office competed in the friendly rivalry against other CapTech markets to raise the most funds per capita for local food banks. The Food Fight started as a local competition in 2013 at the company's headquarters in Richmond, VA and was expanded company-wide this year with enthusiasm and excitement.
"We're so grateful for CapTech's generous gift. This contribution helps us provide 4,200 more meals for hungry men, women and children across our service area. Too many families worry about where they'll get their next meal and many are forced to make difficult choices between purchasing food or medicine, heat, or transportation. The holiday season can be especially challenging. This donation brings hope and meals to help hungry families in our community thrive. Thank you!" said Kevin Seggelke, President and CEO, Food Bank of the Rockies.
