A Salvation Army thanks

A grateful thank-you to Aspen and Snowmass in 2003, with a special commendation to all the volunteers.

On behalf of your local Salvation Army, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for your generous contributions of money, or giving your personal time in tending a kettle. Your efforts helped to raise over $10,600 from the kettles stationed at Clark’s and City Markets in Aspen; and the Village Market in Snowmass.

A special commendation must go to all the volunteers who tended the kettles and rang a bell; you gave your time, which is the best gift of all. Special thanks must go to the store managers at Clark’s, City and Village Markets and to Alpine Bank, who took care of the collections. To all who helped in any way, large or small, your gift of caring and sharing will be returned to you many times over in blessings of abundant love.

This holiday season was a wonderful opportunity to share our blessings. In Aspen and Snowmass, we are blessed with an affluent community that has much to be thankful for. What better way to give thanks than by sharing in our blessings! Contributing to the annual kettle drive is a way for you to help those who help others. It is a way for you to receive much joy and happiness, by helping the Salvation Army in the everyday work of helping those in need as “Need Knows No Season.”

During this holiday season, let us give thanks to God for all His blessings. God will not be outdone in generosity; your gift of sharing will bring you an abundance of His blessings. May God continue to bless you and your families. May peace and goodwill prevail in this troubled world.
