Our community is a place that values the comforts of small-town living, where our neighbors are our friends and we enjoy a high quality of life. Yet even in supportive communities, there are times in our lives when we are uncertain, overwhelmed and in need of a helping hand.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the holiday spirit and ask for your generosity in support of our Mom’s Christmas Program. Please consider supporting this special program.

Throughout the year the Family Visitor Programs reach more than 500 expecting mothers and new parents, providing them with educational information regarding their child’s development, health and nutrition, and other support services. Many of our clients are low income and struggling to make ends meet.

At this time of year, we often think of what we are thankful for and reach out to those in need. Although 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 provide gifts for new moms.

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, 2010. 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, or drop off gifts at 401 23rd Street, Suite 204, Glenwood Springs, CO, 81601.

Thank you to those who have supported our Mom’s Christmas Program in the past. With your generous donations we are able to bring additional cheer into the lives of our needy moms. It is always an unexpected and special treat for moms to be remembered at this joyous time of year. We appreciate your consideration of this request.

During this lame duck session, I am sure that Pelosi and Reid would very much like to really be remembered for passing a multitude of laws that the American public will have to live with. Write your congressmen and women or email them. They all have contact by email.

Remind them that even if they didn’t get re-elected that they took an oath of office to stand up for the American public. They promised to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Our poor country is simply trying to hold it together, our borders are a disaster. Terrorists are on the move. We have Illegals entering our borders continually.

We have judges who deem this is OK. It’s OK to have Criminals re-entering the U.S.? Why is that OK? Stop this Dream Act of Reid and Pelosi – they promised they would get this passed. Don’t allow this to happen.

It certainly won’t after Jan. 1. There will be many new faces in Congress and they are listening to the will of the American public.

There are no jobs and winter is coming on – if there are any jobs out there, they should be going to citizens. People are losing their homes. Lets put America back to work first.
