DENVER – In honor of Thanksgiving, Mayflower Transit agent Buehler Moving & Storage is partnering with KEZW 1430 AM and Homefront Heroes, a military support group, for a unique food drive called “Fill the Mayflower.”
The event will kick off at Aspen Academy in Littleton, Colo., on Nov. 13, with a food drive from 1 to 3 p.m., benefiting the families of the troops stationed at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colo. Buehler Moving & Storage will provide a Mayflower moving van that Aspen Academy students will fill with food donations. In addition to collecting donations, the school has developed a program for students to learn about pilgrims and the history and meaning behind Thanksgiving.
On Nov. 14, the same Mayflower van will “sail” to the Southlands Shopping Center at E-470 & Smokey Hill Road in Denver for a three-day food drive. Donors are encouraged to bring non-perishable goods to the Southlands Shopping Center where representatives from KEZW 1430 AM and Homefront Heroes will place the donations directly into the Mayflower moving van.
“Thanksgiving is always a special holiday for Buehler, as our ‘namesake’ holiday, and we are proud to work with Homefront Heroes and KEZW on this fun food drive that will give back to our hardworking troops and their families,” said Karyn Henry, director of corporate relocations for Buehler Moving & Storage. “Last year we were able to fill a 53-foot-long trailer to the brink – and with the additional involvement of Aspen Academy, we aim to have even more success in 2008!”
