Glenwood Insurance Agency kicks off Thousand Can Drive

Glenwood Insurance Agency has launched an aggressive food drive campaign to assist LIFT-UP in its mission to feed the less fortunate in western Colorado. Glenwood Insurance Agency’s “Thousand Can Drive” will attempt to match or exceed the amount of cans collected by Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park throughout the summer at the Music on the Mountain, which is an ongoing food drive for LIFT-UP that allows patrons to ride the Iron Mountain Tramway for free with the donation of a can or other nonperishable item.

All food collected by Glenwood Insurance Agency and other participating business will be donated to LIFT-UP after Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s final Music on the Mountain concert on Sept. 26 in a small ceremony. Glenwood Insurance Agency is the title sponsor of that evening’s concert featuring local band, The Missing Link.

Those that would like to help may make donations at the agency’s location at 1605 Grand Ave. Unit K in Glenwood Springs, or at Carbondale Insurance Service at 502 Main St. in Carbondale. If your business would like to get involved, visit for marketing materials that make getting involved easy.
