Pitkin County Democrats launch 3-day donation drive for local nonprofits
The Pitkin County Democratic Party is organizing a donation drive leading up to Monday’s observance of the National Day of Service and Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Contributions may be made by “donating food/feminine hygiene items/NEW socks & underwear to a local food bank (in a contactless manner) and/or writing checks to one or more local service organizations,” said an email sent from the organization Thursday.
A drop-off location will be open at 1278 Snowbunny Lane from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Crates will be placed in front of the garage for drop-off of physical items.
Donated items will be delivered to Lift-Up on Tuesday. Organizers emphasized that Lift-Up’s locations are currently closed to drop-offs.
Participating nonprofits are A Way Out, Lift-Up and Response. Checks can be sent directly to those organizations, or they can be dropped off at a secure location at the Snowbunny Lane site. Signs will be posted in the vicinity with information for donors.
