Liquor store raises money for LIFT-UP

In what is becoming a holiday tradition, Roaring Fork Liquors teamed up with Subway and Alpine Bank to raise money for LIFT-UP.

For the third year in a row Roaring Fork Liquors owner Ken Robinson donated all gross profits from Black Friday sales to the nonprofit food bank. Those funds, along with donations from Subway and Alpine Bank, combined to total $3,000.

With offices and food pantries in Aspen, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, New Castle, Rifle and Parachute, LIFT-UP has been serving the region’s needs since 1982. Requests for assistance have been markedly higher since the downturn in the economy in 2008. LIFT-UP has only been able to keep up with the steady demand through the generous support of our caring community.

“With so many of our neighbors needing some help to feed themselves and their families, we feel good about being able to make these donations,” said Robinson as he presented the donations to LIFT-UP’s Executive Director Kim Loving. “When people and businesses come together we can all benefit. We’d like to thank our customers for being such an integral part of this effort.”

Roaring Fork Liquors and Subway are both located in the Roaring Fork Marketplace next to Wal-Mart in Glenwood Springs.
