Readers Say Thanks

I want to publicly share 2 million “thank-yous” to the owners of the Residences at Snowmass Club.Once again, Habitat for Humanity is the recipient of incredible generosity in our community. While it may be the last big hotel donation to Habitat this year, this amazing donation of furniture is certainly not the least. This massive donation originally cost $2 million.With the remodel, the owners of The Residences at Snowmass Club have given Habitat several thousand items, ranging from large pieces of furniture (couches and easy chairs) to bedding sets, to numerous different kinds of tables, to books for the coffee tables, to incredible framed artwork, including very timely autumn scenes and collector skier poster sets, as well as all of the carpets. Thanks to the generosity of the owners, these pieces are now available for the community to purchase at drastically reduced prices, truly amazing values, at Habitat’s ReStore annex in Glenwood Springs, right below Lowe’s and Target, next to Sopris Lighting. The funds raised from this sale will help keep numerous people in the valley employed and most importantly add to our building fund for our lots in Carbondale and Silt.I also want to give a shout-out to others in the community who have made this all happen: Angelique Gifford and the HOA of the Residences, as well as Donna Davis of Aspen Skiing Co., who have worked for months to coordinate this enormous donation. And of course, a huge thank-you to the amazing moving extraordinaire guys at Olde Towne Moving & Storage, led by Jay Abrahamovich and Eric Hunter, who moved it all flawlessly in four days. Thank you to the several dozen volunteers from SkiCo’s community service brigade, led by Sheryl Sabandal and Matt Hamilton, who helped pack and protect more than 1,000 smaller items. And, thank you to Habitat’s staff, for unpacking, sorting and staging it all splendidly.It is wonderful when so many come together to share with others who are less fortunate. This valley is an amazing place to live where such generosity and thoughtfulness abounds.Scott Gilbert, presidentHabitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork ValleyOld Snowmass
