CMC, Chamber and US Bank Holiday Food Drive

Employees of Colorado Mountain College, the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association and U.S. Bank have joined forces to organize a food drive for LIFT-UP, Feed My Sheep, CARE and the Salvation Army. The group has collected nearly as many cans as they did last year, and their goal is double that amount. Through Dec. 17, members of the public are invited to drop off cans, or checks payable to any of the four nonprofit beneficiary organizations, at the Chamber’s front desk at 802 Grand Ave., Glenwood Springs.

Toy drive

The Edward Jones office of Jay McGlade is collecting toys from now though Dec. 13 to donate to less fortunate families in our local community. Drop off the new, unwrapped gifts at 2700 Gilstrap Court Suite 170 in Glenwood Springs. Edward Jones staff will work with the River Center to make this holiday season merry of all our neighbors. Note that Edward Jones cannot accept cash or checks as donations.
