Employees working at Reynolds Polymer Technology in Grand Junction donated a total of $1,000 to the Food Bank of the Rockies, proceeds from an event dubbed March Meal Madness.

“Instead of compiling food items, which can quickly perish, be damaged or be costly, we collected funds to donate to Food Bank of the Rockies,” said Todd King, global logistics manager and president of the Employee Resource Foundation at Reynolds Polymer.

“The benefits of providing direct financial support to the food bank far outweigh contributing food items, as the organizations are able to purchase more inventory than a traditional food drive can supply,” King said.

Sue Ellen Rodwick, Western Slope manager at Food Bank of the Rockies, said she’s grateful for the partnership with Reynolds Polymer. “The impact of these donations does not stop at our specific facility, either. The proceeds extend to our partners as well, including Homeward Bound, the Salvation Army, Kids Aid and more.”

Reynolds Polymer Technology manufactures acrylic products, including windows used in aquariums and swimming pools as well as architectural features and scientific applications. For more information, visit www.reynoldspolymer.com.
