Glenwood Girl Scout goes to camp for first time because of new scholarship

Girl Scout Lanie Allred, of Glenwood Springs, can’t wait for summer. She’s going on an epic quest, where she will have adventures and make memories that will last a lifetime. As the first recipient of the Mary Jo Jacobs, M.D. Memorial Girl Scout Adventure Fund, Lanie will attend “Epic Quest,” which is one of the many camp sessions at Sky High Ranch, a Girl Scouts of Colorado camp in southeastern Colorado.

Jacobs’ four children established the scholarship in December 2014 to honor their mother’s legacy. An avid fan of Girl Scout camp as a child, she grew up to become a doctor who served the people of Eagle and Garfield counties.

LIFT-UP receives grant from Aspen Community Foundation for fresh produce

LIFT-UP gratefully acknowledges a grant in the amount of $7,500 from Aspen Community Foundation. The grant is to support the inclusion of produce in the food distribution from LIFT-UP’s area food pantries in 2015.

“We are most grateful for this funding from the Aspen Community Foundation, and for their interest in providing fresh produce for the people we serve,” said LIFT-UP’s executive director, Kimberly Loving. “Fresh fruits and vegetables are such an important part of a healthy diet, and at-risk families often do not get these items due to cost and availability, particularly during the winter months,” she said. LIFT-UP has supplied gift cards to its food pantries to use for fresh produce each week at local grocery stores in each community.
