Mantooth takes pride in being part of the Fort Collins community. Because of the many incredible and dedicated people that exist here, “FoCo” is a great place to live, play, and work. That’s why we are so excited to be a part of the We R Foco program. We R Foco is a group of locally owned businesses – Fort Collins owned businesses – that give back to this community, whether it be in the form of charities, local event sponsorships, or community outreach programs.
Local businesses donate 250% more to local non-profits than big box stores. Thus, shopping locally will in turn support your local non-profits considerably more than shopping at a big box store. Investing in these businesses will support your neighbors because 68% of your purchase stays within the community!
Since its launch in August of 2018, We R Foco has grown to be over 70 members strong, with each business bringing a new perspective and new connections to reach more of our Fort Collins community. These businesses band together to contribute to local non-profits such as The Matthews House or The OtterCares Foundation and bring attention to these programs that are helping so many of our community members. While these businesses are already contributing to Fort Collins individually, a larger impact is made when we work together and help each other with these missions.
We R Foco as a program also promotes its individual members and shares their stories. For example, did you know that the Surgery Center of Fort Collins can perform out-patient surgeries at a cost up to 40-60% lower than hospitals? Or that Horse and Dragon Brewing hosted a gift-wrapping both to help raise money for Book Trust? These are stories about our local businesses that need to be told and shared.
