Cabela’s outfitters give generously to food bank
The employees at Cabela’s, also known as outfitters, have proven themselves to be the most generous givers in the national chain of sporting goods stores.
“Even though we are a smaller store in the group, our people time and again show unselfish acts of generosity,” said Mark Sutton, events coordinator for the store.
For the past several weeks, the store’s employees have been collecting canned good and non-perishable food donations for the Food Bank of the Rockies on the Western Slope.
The store collected 10,523 pounds of food which equals an average of 54 pounds of food given per employee.
Nationally, the 30 locations of Cabela’s stores gave 90,221 pounds of food to their local food banks.
In addition to the food, outfitter Bob Stephens presented an oversized check for $1,500 to Starlene Collins, executive director of local food bank.
“Thank you so much for what you have done in this store,” Collins said. “We appreciate your efforts very much.”
