LIFT-UP hosts open house today

LIFT-UP has expanded its Aspen food pantry, thanks to generously granted funds by both private and public resources in Aspen.

Coldwell-Banker Mason-Morse recently has granted funds to pay for the space for six months, and more recently LIFT-UP received a grant from the Pitkin County Health and Human Services to continue allowing LIFT-UP to lease the space longer. This enables the 33-year-old organization and its clientele a place to supply ample food items. The Aspen food pantry is located at 465 N. Mill St., No. 12.

To show its thanks for such local support, LIFT-UP is hosting a public open house from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Pantry today.

From January through November 2015, LIFT-UP assisted 37,819 clients and provided 30,380 sacks of groceries. It prepared holiday food baskets for around 900 families in the area for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas.

LIFT-UP needs help year-round, through financial donations or volunteerism. Call 970-625-4496 or go to to find out more.
