Food drives ramp up around Grand County

Each day, deputies at the Grand County Sheriff’s Office encounter families that are struggling. It is difficult to realize many local parents may not have the means to provide their children with a traditional Thanksgiving Meal this season.

This is a problem that can be overcome with just a little help from our community. On Nov. 14 and 15, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office will conduct its fourth annual food drive at our Granby City Market to benefit the Mountain Family Center’s Thanksgiving Basket Project.

For further details call 970-725-3343.

Music for meals

Friday, Nov. 7, also kicks of a week-long food drive to benefit families via Mountain Family Center Food Bank.

Blues Music Award nominee Brandon Santini and his band will perform at Smokin’ Moe’s on Nov. 7 beginning at 7 p.m. Bring $10 worth of non-perishable food to donate — and your dancin’ shoes.

Then, on Saturday, Nov. 15, the Grand County Blues Society presents two teen bands, Our Generation and Paradox, at The Foundry in Fraser beginning at 7 p.m. Entry is free with a donation of non-perishable food.

The Mountain Family Center Food Bank is always in need of more food this time of year. Visit for details.
