The Aurora location of Yogurtland, 18191 East Hampden Avenue, will donate 100 percent of all sales to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund today. The fund, which was set up by the Community First Foundation in partnership with Governor Hickenlooper, has raised over three million dollars thus far.
According to the Community First Foundation's website, that money "will only be used to meet the immediate and long-term needs of victims and their families and, as funds are available, the broad needs of those affected in the community."
Yogurtland is also accepting cash donations at its other Metro locations -- 9910 West Belleview in Littleton, 7947 Wadsworth Blvd in Arvada, 7535 University Boulevard in Centennial and 550 Grant Street -- all of which are open from from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily (with the exception of the Grant location, which opens at 11 a.m.).
Call the Aurora store at 303-699-3221 for more information on today's fundraiser and visit the Community First Foundation's website to donate online.
