Family Visitor Programs invites you to join us in celebrating the holiday spirit and ask for your generosity in support of our Mom’s Christmas Program. There are many wonderful agencies, which provide toys for children and holiday food baskets for the family, this is one of the few programs that provides gifts for new moms. Many of our clients are low income and are struggling to make ends meet. With your generous donations we are able to bring additional cheer into the lives of our needy moms. For many of our moms this may be the only gift they receive.Your donation of a new gift item, gift certificate or cash to buy a gift, will help us in our effort. The deadline to make a donation is Monday, Dec. 6. This is so that staff will have time to get the gifts out to their moms. All donations are tax deductible. If you can help, please contact the Family Visitor Programs at 945-1234 ext.10 or drop off gifts at 401 23rd Street, Suite 204, Glenwood Springs, CO, 81601.
