Elks seek hides to help veterans

If you are a hunter, or know a hunter, the Colorado Elks Association would appreciate the donation of any animal hides collected during hunting season through the end of January. The hides will be sent to tanneries to be turned into leather, which will be made into gloves (fingerless and full-finger) for disabled vets to protect their hands while using wheelchairs or crutches. Some of the leather is also used for craft kits that are used for occupational and recreational therapy. These items are given to the vets free of charge. If you have any questions, need more information or want to help collect and salt the hides please contact Tom Regan at 970-948-9127 or at
