Letter: Thrift Shop opens doors to health in Woody Creek

The Neighborhood Clinic of the Woody Creek Community Center would like to thank the hardworking volunteers of the Thrift Shop of Aspen for its recent grant award.

This amazing group of women has been supporting nonprofits throughout the Roaring Fork Valley for more than 65 years with more than $6.5 million in grant money. In addition to the value of the financial support, this group contributes to the power of nonprofits by listening to them, acknowledging them and encouraging them throughout the grant process and beyond.

The Thrift Shop of Aspen accepts gently used and fully functional household goods, sporting goods, clothing, linens, toys and books. Please bring your good stuff to the shop to support its great work. More information can be found at http://aspenthriftshop.org.

The Neighborhood Clinic will use this grant money to strengthen and continue providing free health assessments, education, vitals and referrals through its monthly free M.D. hours and quarterly health fairs. Annual free flu shots and semiannual blood-screening labs at cost also are available. Find a schedule and more details on offerings at http://www.theneighborhoodclinic.org.
