Making It Happen!

Taking Action.

The Centennial Lending a Hand Foundation is busy living our values and working towards our mission. We’re proud of our accomplishments and excited about our upcoming events. Taking action is what we do, but we couldn’t do it without your continued support.

Slammin’ Famine.

The Slammin’ Famine event is a fun, high energy event to pre-pack meals for children in other countries. The Foundation in cooperation with Centennial Lending sponsored over 50 volunteer hours and donated $1,000 in cash to Feed My Starving Children who host the event in Northern Colorado.

“It always feels great to know you’re making a difference in the lives of others simply be volunteering a few hours of your time. They crank up the music and it’s a fun team event with a bit of competition too. I always look forward to this event.” – Autumn Harris

Community Choice Credit Union.

Community Choice Credit Union, in partnership with The Foundation, provided $1,000 to each elementary school in District 14, provided $250 in books for 20 in-bound college students, collected used bikes and purchased new bikes for under served youth, and helped launch several programs and community support projects, such as clothing drives as well as back to school and an annual resource fair for the school district.

“Our focus remains on being a great community partner. Thank you for this amazing opportunity!  I hope you realize what value you are bringing to the communities that you reach.  It’s not just a grant.  What the Foundation is doing is changing lives.  Together we are making at tremendous impact.” – Rainy Thoen, CPA/CEO
