Great Causes

Many families in our area receive free/reduced breakfasts for their children during the school year. The Good Samaritan Center Food Pantry is sponsoring a Cereal Drive to fill this need during the summer months.

Cortez Quilt Company employees have been participating in the Cereal Drive, and would like to invite you to join in with us. Please bring your boxes of cereal into CQC from now until Friday, June 22nd. We can all help kids start off the day right!


Quilters, Crocheters, Knitters and Semstresses Unite!
Do you have a homemade quilt, afghan or blanket to donate to a child receiving support from the Four Corners Child Advocacy Center? Help us reach our 2nd quarter goal by dropping off your blankets and filling out a donation form on June 25th. Last year the Advocacy Center donated 400 blankets to youth in our area. Not only do they need quilts, they also are able to receive grant money that matches the hours a volunteer spends making the donated project. Grab a muffin and be entered into a drawing for a nice prize. Your volunteer hours mean the world to them. Please call 970-565-8155 for more info.
