For those looking to give back this holiday season, why not look at local organizations here in Grand County? Donating a little time or money can go a long way for individuals or families in need. Even though we’re a bustling ski resort town with a large second home population, here in the Winter Park/Fraser Valley the opportunities are plentiful. Here’s a list of just a few places to consider this holiday season:
Angel Tree at Cooper Creek Square
Donors collect an angel card from the tree and fulfill individual Christmas wishes. Simply choose a card and shop for that individual or family in need and return your gift to any Cooper Creek shop.
The Shining Stars Foundation
2017 annual toy drive is in progress until December 14th. The Shining Stars, based in Tabernash, helps children and their families facing cancer and other life threatening illnesses. They are seeking toys, gift cards, art supplies, etc.
The Mountain Family Center
The vision of this great organization is “To connect individuals and families to available resources, programs and services helping to alleviate hunger and poverty”. Always looking for donations whether it be clothes or food items.
Consider giving back to this wonderful community organization which services all of Grand County. The Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life in Grand County by proactively addressing current and future needs in the areas of Health & Human Services, Arts & Culture, Education, Amateur Sports and Environment.
Why not enjoy a night of BINGO while you’re visiting the area next? Each Saturday night throughout the winter months, the Rotary hosts a night at Carvers in Winter Park benefiting a local non profit organization. Gather your family and friends and test your luck to win some cash prizes and supporting the community.
Colorado Gives Day is tomorrow, December 5th! WPSEF is an organization which supports training of all athletes in various ski and snowboard programs, develop the sport of ski and snowboard competitions, supports entry level programs and in assisting all athletes in reaching their goals.
