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
