I've learned this today that even though we’re supposed to be spiritual, it is important to look at the human side of a friend or a stranger and take a walk in their shoes for a moment. For some reason, it causes me to circle back and look at the inside of myself again. Everyone’s journey is different and should not be minimized but uplifted. When we lift someone’s spirits up, we get a chance to grow as well; what a great opportunity we provide for ourselves while lifting others.
Our 2017 backpacks for kids was very successful. We worked in partnership with The Salvation Army in Fort Collins to help manage the distribution of backpacks and filling them with school supplies. Over 160 kids were furnished with needed supplies and backpacks. Many thanks to volunteers at the Salvation Army in Fort Collins, and others: Daniel Landry, Thaylor Iron Rope, and board member Charles Robles. Comcast was very instrumental in getting us over the top. We appreciate Elevations Credit Union for their third year of financial support!
