Airline holds food drive to help Good Samaritan Center

Great Lakes Aviation, Ltd., in conjunction with Hunger Action Month, is organizing their 4th Annual “Flyin’ 4 Food” campaign to benefit the Good Samaritan Center in Cortez.

One in six Americans are at risk for hunger. The nearly 49 million Americans who struggle with hunger live in our communities; they are our neighbors, our co-workers and our friends. Today, many public food-assistance programs and private organizations strive to meet the nutritional needs of these vulnerable Americans. Great Lakes Airlines and the Good Samaritan Center are asking for the public’s help in the fight to end hunger.

Throughout the month of September, bring a non-perishable food item to the Great Lakes counter and be eligible to win one of four round trip tickets between Cortez and Denver. Donate as much as you like, however only one entry per person, per week is permitted. Donations will be accepted Monday through Friday from 5 to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at the Cortez Municipal Airport, 22874 County Rd. F. Weekend hours are limited. Contact Great Lakes’ Director of Public Relations, Monica Taylor-Lee at 307-432-7022 with any questions.
