Kettle donations appreciated

On behalf of your local Salvation Army I wish to express my sincere appreciation for your contribution to the kettles this Christmas season. Through your special efforts and generosity, you helped us raise over $7,650 from the kettles at Clark’s Market and City Market in Aspen.

A special commendation must go to all the volunteers who tended the kettles; and gave of their valuable time, which is the best gift of all.

Special thanks must go to the store managers at both Clark’s and City Market, and to Alpine Bank in Aspen who took care of our collections. To all of you, who helped in any way, large or small; your gift of caring and sharing will be returned with many blessings. This past holiday season was a wonderful opportunity to share.

In Aspen, we are especially blessed. We are a community that has much to be thankful for. What better way to give thanks than by sharing our blessings! How often we wish to help others; if only we had the time.

Contributing to the kettles is a way to help those who help others. It is a way to receive special blessings by helping The Salvation Army in its everyday work of helping the working poor in the Roaring Fork Valley, as “Need knows no season.”

During this special season let us give thanks to Almighty God for all his blessings. God will not be outdone in generosity; your gift of hope will bring an abundance of his blessings.

God bless you for your generosity, and may God continue to bless and protect our nation. May our prayers for “peace and goodwill to all” become a reality for this troubled world.
