Readers Say Thanks

The Advocate Safehouse Project Board of Directors, staff and clients would like to extend our deepest appreciation to everyone who supported our Gift of Hope campaign this past holiday season. The residents in Garfield County continue to amaze me in how much they support the Advocate Safehouse Project.

This community’s generosity is especially valued during these economic hard times. I would also like to extend a special thank you to the Community Banks of Colorado for making this campaign possible with their sponsorship.

There were many individuals, families and businesses that sponsored our clients with food and gift baskets this holiday season and even held food and toy drives for us.

They are: Neil-Garing Insurance Co., Russo’s Pizza, Andy Broderick, Sonlight Foursquare Church, Girl Scout Troops No. 244 and No. 275, Curves, Green Natural Solutions and the O’Neil, Scofield and Slagter families. Thank you!

They truly made the difference for these families. Christmas morning was so much brighter for these families than they ever thought possible.

The cheer of the holiday season does not easily impart remembrance of those who are victimized by domestic violence and/or sexual assault. However, all too often the holidays become a dangerous time for many families. While violence may not be present in your home, it may be in the life of someone you care about … a family member, a neighbor, co-worker or a friend.

Because of community members like these, working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault is made a bit easier. Thank you for supporting our Gift of Hope campaign with the Advocate Safehouse Project and our clients. Your support is deeply appreciated.

Happy New Year with our most heartfelt appreciation. The New Castle LIFT-UP Food Bank has been blessed beyond our wildest wishes with food donations from local churches, schools, scout troops, the library, social groups, lodges and individuals, both known and unknown.

We gave Christmas food bags to 104 struggling families to help their holidays be a little bit more pleasant.

We always want to help folks through the rough patches of illness, unemployment and other tough times. Please come to see us.

We are regularly available for donations and emergency food assistance at our LIFT-UP Food Bank in the River Center at 126 N. Fourth St., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.
