Local Colorado Charities Making A Difference for Our Kids
According to Jeff Bezos' Twitter page, Dolly Parton was awarded $100 million as the recipient of Jeff Bezos' 2022 Courage and Civility Award. The donations given to Dolly will be passed on to organizations of her choice. I'm sure Dolly has many charities to choose from these days.
But for us here in Montrose, Colorado, we have some incredible year-round charities, and I know this season will be a challenge, especially when it comes to giving. If you have a few extra bucks to share this Christmas, here are a few great local charities that could use your help this holiday season...
