Letter: Thrift shop turns donations into grants

Every month, volunteers of The Thrift Shop of Aspen meet to continue to accomplish our mission: to make grants to other nonprofit organizations in the Roaring Fork Valley. We are grateful to all the community members who continue to support our efforts by donating and purchasing gently used clothing and household items. For the month of October we are pleased to announce the following recipients:

Pitkin County Health and Human Services, Valley Settlement Project, Growing Years Preschool, The Buddy Program, Aspen Community Theater, Aspen Homeless Shelter, Aspen Middle School — sixth-grade project, Aspen Choral Society, Aspen Historical Society, Basalt Library Teen Department, Basalt High School/Roaring Fork High School girls tennis team, KDNK, Senior Matters, Valley Life for All, and Woody Creek Community Flu Shot Clinic.
