Toys for veterans’ children from Western Slope Veterans Coalition

Happy holidays from the Western Slope Veterans Coalition. We provide a hub of information and programs that honor and support the veterans in the Roaring Fork and Eagle valleys, and our services don’t stop during the holiday season. CASA of the 9th and The Toy Foundation have donated toys for our veterans’ children and grandchildren. Stop by and pick out a toy for your loved ones and keep those stockings full for the joy of the holidays. Call 970-233-8735 for more information.
