Rocky Mountain Convenience Stores — a Grand Junction firm that operates Shell Convenience Stores and co-branded Wienerschnitzel and Tastee Freeze locations in Western Colorado — has conducted the “No One Goes Hungry on Christmas” event for the last five years. More than 1,000 meals were served last year.

While individuals and businesses have offered to donate to support the event, they’re encouraged to give instead to other organizations in the community.
