Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) October 08, 2013

In order to assist victims of the recent floods in Boulder, Colorado, local frozen yogurt machine and supply retailer, Forte Supply delivered free frozen yogurt to shelters where victims were housed after being displaced from their homes.

By giving their high-quality and tasty frozen yogurt products to volunteers, first-responders, and to those in need, they did their part to help the local community.

The impetus for this act of kindness was spontaneous. According to Jeff Resnick, CEO, the company’s Vice-President of Sales came up with the idea, which was rapidly implemented:

“Jeff Becker, our VP of Sales, had the idea over dinner with his father. He mentioned it in the morning and we all jumped on it. We have a trailer we use for demonstrations that is equipped to serve frozen yogurt out of, so we packed it up with frozen yogurt mix, cleaned our SS100 machines, and headed out.” Members of the Forte Supply team banded together in order to make Becker’s vision a reality. By moving quickly and doing all that they could to support the community during this troubled time, they allowed volunteers and flood victims to enjoy a tasty treat and a much-needed break during the crisis.

While the process of packing up machines and delivering frozen yogurt products was dangerous, due to flooding and related damage, all staff members were able to remain safe as they implemented this not-for-profit flood relief assistance plan. Some employees did experience minor car and road damage, but kept going to fulfill their mission of helping the local community.

While company representatives were certainly aware that more help was required, in addition to frozen yogurt, they were gratified by the warm reception that they received from those that they fed. Also, by getting out and meeting community members who were directly affected by the flooding, and liaising with volunteers, they felt more connected to their own community. Frozen yogurt continued to be handed out until all supplies were depleted.
