A contractor in Granby shared the holiday spirit by donating carloads of toys to Mountain Family Center on Thursday.

If you go…

What: Toy Room

Where: Mountain Family Center, 480 E Agate Ave, Granby

When: 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday and Monday

ESCO Construction Company also presented a check to the center as part of the holiday goodwill. Employees of the company and trustees at Mountain Family Center unloaded two carloads of donations Thursday afternoon, packing the charity’s toy donation room.

Helen Sedlar, executive director of Mountain Family Center, was excited for the donations and hoped to get the word out for families still in need of Christmas presents.

“We’ve done the toy room for the last five years,” Sedlar said. “Ours have been stocking stuffers and smaller toys, so to get this level and volume of toys is really going to serve more families.”

The idea to donate came together quickly for the contractors, according to ESCO’s superintendent Shahn Morganflash.

“We were just talking about it and … asked them what they needed,” Morganflash said. “We just put it together on the job sight.”

The toy room, with these new donations, is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and Monday for families who need help with holiday gifts. For more information, contact the Mountain Family Center at 970-557-3186.
