Five local charities share in donations

The Linx Networking Group is a business networking organization whose members work together to grow and promote their businesses. All dues not used for administration are given to local charities annually. These annual donations have been made by the Linx group since 2000. In January 2015, Linx donated $2,000 to Hospice of the Valley, Tom’s Door, Huts for Vets, English in Action and Feed My Sheep. Collectively these organizations address the needs in our valley of the homeless, troubled adults, service veterans, non-English speaking residents, and those at the end of life. Each organization can be found on the Internet should you wish to make a personal contribution.

The Tuesday Linx group welcomes new members. Call Secretary Keith Edquist at 970-928-8428 for further details.

LIFT-UP receives donation from the Gallegos Corp.

LIFT-UP received a generous donation in the amount of $1,250 from Gallegos Corp., a construction services company based in Vail. Gallegos gives more than $100,000 to local charities each year. “We are so grateful for the support we receive from the business community, and it’s wonderful to see people giving back to help their neighbors,” said Kimberly Loving, executive director for LIFT-UP. The contribution will help LIFT-UP assist families in the local community during the winter months, a season of typically higher demand at the food pantries. LIFT-UP operates seven area food pantries from Aspen to Parachute.
