Remember the moms

Dear Editor:

Our community is a place that values the comforts of small-town living, where our neighbors are our friends and we enjoy a high quality of life. Yet even in supportive communities, there are times in our lives when we are uncertain, overwhelmed and in need of a helping hand.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the holiday spirit and ask for your generosity in support of our Mom’s Christmas Program. Please consider supporting this special program.

Throughout the year the Family Visitor Programs reach more than 500 expecting mothers and new parents, providing them with educational information regarding their child’s development, health and nutrition, and other support services. Many of our clients are low-income and struggling to make ends meet. At this time of year, we often think of what we are thankful for and reach out to those in need. Although there are many wonderful agencies which provide toys for children and holiday food baskets for the family, this is one of the few programs that provide gifts for new moms.

Your donation of a new gift item, gift certificate or cash to buy a gift will help us in our effort. The deadline to make a donation is Monday, Dec. 6. This is so that staff will have time to get the gifts out to moms. All donations are tax deductible. If you can help, please contact the Family Visitor Programs at 945-1234 or drop off gifts at 401 23rd St., Suite 204, in Glenwood Springs.

Thank you to those who have supported our Mom’s Christmas Program in the past. With your generous donations we are able to bring additional cheer into the lives of our needy moms. It is always an unexpected and special treat for moms to be remembered at this joyous time of year. We appreciate your consideration of this request.
