Welch: How to help this giving season

As we approach the season of giving, it’s a perfect time to reflect on the power of generosity and its profound impact on our community.

Our local non-profit organizations play a vital role in our community’s well-being, tending to a wide range of needs and causes that impact the lives of many individuals. While financial contributions to non-profits are essential, it’s equally important to recognize that there are countless nonmonetary ways to support the organizations that serve our valley.

This giving season, the Buddy Program encourages you to explore the many avenues through which you can contribute. By reaching out to local non-profits and contributing your time, skills, and goodwill, you can help make a positive impact. Maybe you love to bake and could provide food or snacks for volunteers. Do you have a skill set to share with youth?

To explore the many ways you can make a meaningful contribution that goes beyond financial support, we invite you to visit the Buddy Program’s website to discover giving opportunities and inspiring ideas for actively supporting youth in the Roaring Fork Valley.
