Letter: Day of Giving needs your support

We are writing to let our town know that the third annual Day of Giving will be Oct. 4 at St. Mary Catholic Church in Aspen. This event means so much to our valley. It’s a chance for people to go through their closets and homes and feel good about giving their gently used clothing/goods for those in our valley who are in need.

The past two years, we have witnessed hundreds of people come through the doors of the church and find coats and sweaters and house goods for their homes. We have families tell us that this event enables them to clothe their children and themselves properly for the coming winter.

We are always looking for people who would like to volunteer the days before the event to set up as well as on the Day of Giving. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Allison Daily (allison@pathfinders


If you have clothing or goods to donate, please drop them off at Alpine Bank in Snowmass Village or Aspen or at Susie’s Resale at Willits or Aspen. You also can email Allison to arrange a pickup. Any local stores, we would love any donations! If you would like to donate money (that we use to purchase gas cards and grocery cards for the people who come), please make the checks out to St. Mary Catholic Church, 533 E. Main St., Aspen, CO 81611. If you know someone who lives downvalley who wants to come but can’t afford gas or bus money, please let us know, and we will provide that for them. We want everyone who could use support to receive it.

Thank you!
