A warm thanks

Dear Editor:

We would like to extend a huge thank-you to all of the school children, teachers, support staff, hospital employees and volunteers from Aspen to Glenwood who participated in our first coat drive.

During October we collected more than 500 used coats in public schools, Aspen Valley Hospital and Rotary for adults and children. We had the opportunity to distribute the coats at the 3rd Street Center in Carbondale on Oct. 30-31, where we passed out more than 400 coats. Remaining coats will be donated to our local Lift-Up operation. Without the support and caring of the folks in this valley we would not have been able to outfit more than 400 children and adults with warm coats for the winter.

Keeping the people in our valley warm – one coat at a time!
