LIFT-UP receives grant from U.S. Bank

LIFT-UP gratefully acknowledges receipt of a $1,000 grant from U.S. Bank for use in its ongoing efforts to alleviate hunger in the local region. “We greatly appreciate the support we receive from the local business community, and this grant from U.S. Bank will really help as we move into the busy fall and winter seasons,” said LIFT-UP executive director, Kimberly Loving.

Each year, the U.S. Bank Foundation provides cash contributions to nonprofit organizations in its grant priority areas of education, economic opportunity, and artistic and cultural enrichment. In 2013, the U.S. Bank Foundation provided more than $23.4 million in grant funding.

LIFT-UP operates seven area food pantries from Parachute to Aspen, along with The Extended Table soup kitchens in Glenwood Springs and Rifle, and thrift stores in Rifle and Parachute. Founded in 1982, LIFT-UP is now in its 32nd year of service in our local communities. Learn more about U.S. Bank at and about LIFT-UP at
