Alida Eide is a superstar!

Alida presented LIFT-UP of the Roaring Fork Valley with more than 1,500 cans of food on Monday.

Alida is a 10-year-old Junior Girl Scout and took on the food drive project on her way to earning the Girl Scout Bronze Award ” the highest award that a Junior Girl Scout can earn.

Alida got the idea of a canned food drive after participating in a Christmas canned food drive. To her, a food drive made sense. “There are people that need food all year-round, not just during the holidays.”

Way to go Alida, keep up the good work!
