Helping the helpers: nonprofit wish lists

Aspen Times Staff Report

In last week’s Aspen Times Weekly and Friday’s edition of the daily, we published an extensive list of items that valley nonprofits would like for the holiday season.However, because of a deadline mixup, several organizations turned in their lists too late in the week to be included in those editions. In an effort to make sure all groups in need get a chance to ask for their top three items, we are publishing the rest of the lists in today’s edition.Again, we ask everyone to remember that the past year and half has been especially tough on nonprofits as funding sources have either dried up or been unable to provide the money necessary for many organizations to survive. Please open your hearts and do what you can for one of the valley’s nonprofits.Animal Rescue of ColoradoFoster homes for cats or dogs; volunteers for a wide variety of things, such as helping care for the dogs and cats, record keeping and fund raising; a foster home for an older, very sweet, very neglected cat.
