Local nonprofits, send us your wish lists!

Well, we just finished giving thanks and now we’re into the season of giving.For the last couple of years, The Aspen Times has tried to promote a communitywide spirit of charity and generosity by inviting local nonprofit organizations to send us their wishes for 2005; we take those wish lists and publish them around Christmas, while urging readers to peruse the list and see if they can help.Nonprofits have told us in the past that this wish list has borne real fruit and even helped a few of them through a recession that drove down donations. So we’re doing it again.In this edition, we ask any and all nonprofits from Glenwood Springs to Aspen to send us lists of three items they need. Please be as brief and concise as possible, and make sure to include a contact person and phone number. Lists can be hand-delivered to our front office at 310 E. Main St. in Aspen, or faxed to 925-9156, or (preferably) e-mailed to mail@aspentimes.com with the words “WISH LIST” in the subject line. We must receive the lists by 5 p.m. Dec. 20.We will take your lists and publish the complete list of verifiable submissions during Christmas week (“verifiable” means that we can call the organization and ensure it’s for real).Thanks to all of the valley’s nonprofits for their good work, and for their participation in what seems to be turning into an annual holiday tradition.
