Glenwood Springs Post Independent a drop-off site for toys, food

We do live in a generous area.

When we let people know that we would serve as a drop-off point for Colorado Animal Rescue, our lobby filled up with pet food, cat litter, beds, carriers, toys, collars and so much more.

There have literally been more than 500 pounds of supplies taken to CARE thanks to your tremendous generosity.

Thank you so much.

And we’re not stopping. We will continue to be a drop-off point for pet supplies for CARE. Actually, our lobby feels a little bare without supplies now.

The great response we received from our call out to help CARE got us thinking. Why not be a drop-off point for other things.

The holidays are always the time when attention is turned to the less fortunate. People who are struggling to make ends meet and just need a little help. During these harsh economic times, there will be more people who could use a little help.

That’s why we want to do what we can to help out a little.

Through the rest of November and December the Post Independent will serve as a drop-off point for canned/nonperishable foods and children’s toys.

We will take your food donations (and ours as well) and pass them along to LIFT-UP and other food banks in the area. Every little bit helps.

For the toy drive we will collect toys for the LIFT-UP Angel Drive program and Operation Vacation’s program to give toys to soldiers’ children at the Fort Carson base in Colorado Springs.

These are difficult times, and there are people who can use our help. Bring your nonperishable food items and toys to the Post Independent office at 2014 Grand Ave.
