Roaring Fork Liquors in Glenwood Springs owner Ken Robinson has announced that all gross profits from sales on “Black Friday,” Nov. 25, will be donated to LIFT-UP.

LIFT-UP food pantries serve more than 2,600 people every month from Aspen to Parachute. The current economic climate has seen the numbers swell, and more people are using the services of this nonprofit organization.

“I know that so many of our neighbors are in some dire economic circumstances.” said Robinson. “I encourage everyone that can to give to a charity of their choice. Whether it’s to LIFT-UP through us or by other means, please help your less fortunate neighbors.”

Roaring Fork Liquors will be open from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. and is located in the Roaring Fork Marketplace next to Walmart in Glenwood Springs.
