Letter: Thank you Klein Family Charitable Fund and BJ Adams
Dear Klein Family Charitable Fund and BJ AdamS,
Thank you for the generous donation of $3,000 to the Snowmass Village Community Outreach Fund. Normally the fund donates on a case by case basis to members within the community. Unfortunately this is not a normal time and we anticipate a much greater need in 2020.
With the unprecedented loss of jobs within the community it is difficult to gauge what will be needed in the coming months; it is too early to know what will happen in the long run but we anticipate an increase in need to pay a variety of expenses from rent/mortgage, HOA fees, health care, and child care, along with basic requests for food assistance.
Respecting your request to make these funds impact the community in planned manner, we have used the donation to buy 40 gift certificates for Clark’s Market Snowmass at $75 each. We have already started distributing the cards to those in need and will be working with other groups and organizations to ensure the rest of the gift cards are distributed to those most impacted. This gift to the community is earmarked for the basic need of food, guaranteed to stay within the community, and supports a local business. This will have a resounding positive impact within our community!
We graciously and humbly accept your donation and thank you for helping us as our community navigates the COVID-19 crisis.
