Sopris Sun: Thank you to Aspen Thrift Shop

We are deeply grateful to the Aspen Thrift Shop for their generous donation in support of the Sopris Sun’s Youth Journalism Program. We believe good journalism is crucial to a functioning democracy, a healthy community, and a shared social understanding.

Now in its third year, the program teaches practical skills and ethical principles, empowering local high school students to become responsible journalists. One program graduate came back as a teacher assistant and is now a writer/illustrator on our adult freelance team; another is studying journalism in college; and yet another youth contributor won a Colorado Press Association Award this year. We are extremely proud of our students. Every day, they give us reason for a hopeful future. You can enjoy their work on the pages of the Sopris Sun and el Sol del Valle.

The Aspen Thrift Shop is a shining star for supporting non-profits and school programs. As a non-profit entity, we are so fortunate for their dedication and generosity.

With gratitude,

Sopris Sun Board & Staff
