Mesa County Partners is updating their "kids area" and your help is needed. They're well underway, but there's still plenty to do.

Partners is expanding its facility to include:

  • Yoga area
  • Arts and Crafts area
  • Designated reading cubby

This project is being implemented by the kids in the program. They're picking up skills including fundraising, design, sweat equity, and painting. In other words, landlords in the making.

Obviously, these additions will have a cost. They've already raised $2,500 in donations and supplies. Those involved hope to raise $12,000.

Here's how you can help. Alpine Bank has agreed to match donations up to $6,000. So, if the kids and crew at Partners can raise a total of $6,000, the match from Alpine Bank will get them to the goal.

How do you donate? You can drop off donations at Partners at 1169 Colorado Avenue, or at any Alpine Bank. For more info, call Partners at 245-5555.
