OSM delivers support to local charities

Based on last month’s successful fundraising and “friend-raising” social media outreach that allowed OSM to raise $450 for LIFT-UP, OSM has identified CARE and Loma Cat House as the next beneficiaries of their ongoing business strategy incorporating community philanthropy. For every “like” on Facebook through the month of October, OSM Delivery LLC will donate $1 to animal shelters in the Roaring Fork Valley and Grand Junction area, an area served by OSM Delivery for more than 18 years.

In addition to the social media outreach campaign, OSM Delivery takes it a step further. Staff member and driver Jim Garland has been shopping weekly for LIFT-UP for years, inspiring owner Janet Principe to contribute to his grocery expense, thus laying the path to philanthropy ever since, and leading to other endeavors, such as recently making 70 sandwiches in support of LIFT-UP’s Extended Table.

Though new recipients of the online social media fundraising have been selected for October, OSM Delivery will continue to offer $2 off delivery fees for a donation of a canned good that will be delivered to LIFT-UP.
