Service projects to benefit Mountain Family Center, Aug. 6

As part of the 75th Anniversary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ Welfare Program, church members around the world are embarking on service projects. The Granby Branch has several different activities planned during its “Day of Service,” all benefiting the Mountain Family Center.

On Aug. 6 there will be a car wash at the Grand Car Wash, Highway 40 in Granby, from 8 a.m. to noon for cash donations. At three locations on Aug. 6 and 13 there will be food drives for non-perishable items. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. non-perishable items will be collected by Cub Scout Pack # 104 and Boy Scout Troops # 605 and 104 at the Kremmling Merchantile, City Market in Granby and Alco in Fraser. Fliers will be available at all locations for suggested donations.

The Primary children’s class at the church is assembling both children and adult hygiene kits. Additionally, the women’s Relief Society and the Young Women’s groups are making three sizes of blankets. Director of the Mountain Family Center Jill Korkowski has expressed the need for all these items and looks forward to receiving them.

The Mountain Family Center recently celebrated 30 years of providing a myriad of services to those in need in Grand County.
