Letter: Summer donation challenge for Aspen Youth Center

Summer donation challenge for Aspen Youth Center

I am amazed at the generosity and creativity of this community!

Aspen Youth Center recently sent out its annual spring-summer mail appeal in which we invite the community to stand with us by making a financial contribution in support of the programs and services we provide for the children and young adults of the Roaring Fork Valley. In response to this mailing, we have been approached by a kind and thoughtful local family — who wish to remain anonymous — with an offer of a $20,000 summer donation challenge!

This means that they will match dollar-for-dollar every donation received by Aspen Youth Center in the next three months up to $20,000.

What an inspiration! This is a great time to support the free youth programs offered by the Aspen Youth Center. Call 970-544-4130 to learn more.
