Bellco Partners with the American Red Cross to Help the Non-Profit Celebrate Its 100th Anniversary in Colorado

May 21, 2014

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- This year marks the 100th anniversary of the American Red Cross in Colorado, and Bellco is partnering with the non-profit to help them celebrate a century of service. The American Red Cross has planned a year of activities throughout the state, and Bellco is supporting the celebration by promoting its theme in all 21 Bellco branches and distributing free "Celebrating a Century in Colorado" bracelets to help spread the word.

Each month, Bellco sponsors a Charity of the Month program that allows its more than 230,000 customers to support a nonprofit organization through an online donation from their Bellco account, or by donating via phone or at a Bellco branch. Bellco designated the American Red Cross as its charity partner for May.

In June, Bellco is offering free “Disaster Preparedness” workshops in three of its branches. Taught by American Red Cross disaster preparedness experts, the workshops will share potentially life-saving information on how to be ready for any type of disaster or hazard such as flooding or wildfires. Attendees will receive free USB drives that include critical disaster and financial preparedness information. For more information or to sign up for one of the workshops, visit
