The Family Visitor Programs would like to invite you to share the spirit of the holiday season with some of the 500 mothers in their program. Although there are many wonderful agencies that provide toys for the kids and holiday food baskets for the family, this is one of the few programs that provide gifts for new moms. Donations of a new gift item, a gift certificate or cash, will help the Family Visitor Programs. So that the staff can have time to get the gifts out to their moms, the deadline to make a donation is Dec. 6. Donations are tax deductible. Please contact the Family Visitor Programs at 945-1234, ext. 10, or drop off your gift at 401 23rd St., Suite 204, Glenwood Springs.
