The Glenwood Springs City Market presented LIFT-UP with a check for $6,000 on Sept. 23. The funds represent a donation from The Kroger Foundation’s City Market Cares program, along with customer donations placed in coin boxes located by the cash registers in the checkout lanes. All City Market coin box funds are used to support hunger relief organizations in each store’s local community. During this period of continued high demand for services, LIFT-UP is grateful to City Market for their ongoing support, and to the thousands of customers who contributed to the coin boxes.

The Great Rifle Rotary Ball Drop fundraiser, held Aug. 15, raised $16,500. The beneficiary of this event was the Raising a Reader program in the Roaring Fork Valley, which will receive $5,500. Raising a Reader promotes reading among preschoolers and teaches parents how to give the gift of reading to their kids. Rifle Rotary works to better the Rifle Community by promoting education, literacy and financial responsibility to our students, contributing to many organizations including Meals on Wheels, YouthZone and programs and scholarships at our local schools. It also participates in international projects to help reduce child mortality and end polio worldwide. Proceeds from this event go a long way to accomplish these and many other related projects during the year. Thank you to all who sponsored the Ball Drop, contributed prizes and purchased tickets to make it a huge success.
