As you get your Tuesday started in Grand Junction you may have noticed some extra activity at the Mesa Mall this morning. That is because today is Colorado Gives Day across the Centennial State and right here in Grand Junction, Mesa Mall is acting as a headquarters for donations to many local and state non-profits.

If you stop by the mall today you'll find 39 different charities are on hand to answer questions, enroll volunteers, and take any size donation to the charity of your choice. Every amount, large or small, will be gladly accepted until 9 p.m.

Take the link to ColoradoGives.org and you can actually watch the donation counter spin as donations are made and funds are added to the days total. The state-wide event has been organized by the Community First Foundation since 1975.

If you stop by Mesa Mall today to make a donation, we would love to see a photo of you with the organization of your choice. Upload your photo in the comments section of this article on social media and we will give you a shout out for being a part of Colorado Gives Day.
