Letter: Carey, Angel Tree

Letter of Thanks,

As the coordinator of the Angel Tree at Cooper Creek Square, I was reminded of what the holidays are all about – giving from the heart to those in need! The Angel Tree is in its fifteenth year helping local children. Each Angel card represents a Grand County child from a family struggling financially and challenged to provide gifts for the holidays. Many children just need warm clothes, boots and food, or simply request, “Anything would be great.”

This year’s response to the Angel Tree was overwhelming. As each group of cards was placed on the tree, they would be taken within a few days; this continued until all the cards were taken. As the gifts began to flood in, we were struck by the generosity of this community as we were knee-deep in gifts that stretched across the large Angel room. Thank you to everyone that took a card and generously provided gifts and smiles to the children and families on the tree. Thank you to those wonderful folks who made cash donations and sent gift cards for food. Thank you to Centennial Bank for their generous donation to the Angel Tree. Thank you to Shirley Hale for helping keep things on track and gifts out the door to be delivered by Christmas morning. Thank you to the organizations and individuals that pulled together the Angel cards and delivered the many, many gifts. Thank you to all the stores at Cooper Creek Square that donated time to the Angel TreeThank you to Trude Kleess, Tom Corrigan and the Share-a-Gift project in Boulder who showed up, as they do every year, with a ton of wonderful donations. More than anything I want to say how grateful I am to live in a community that cares and shares the way we do in Grand County. You all make living here that much more special. Happy New Year.
