Memories & Milestones

Six of Lorie Beattie Couriers classes from Glenwood Springs Middle School combined their efforts to raise money to present LIFT-UP with a check for $1,234.78 on Jan. 15. Students from Mrs. Couriers Choir and Community Connections classes participated in the fundraising project. Some earned money by shoveling snow or baby-sitting, and others collected donations from friends and neighbors. LIFT-UP Executive Director Mike Powell told the classes their generous support will help pay for some of the Angel Tree gifts LIFT-UP purchased for children on unclaimed and unreturned Angels. LIFT-UP gave 3,619 local children Angel Tree gifts for Christmas.
