Pat Jones: Organization thankful for support

On behalf of Love INC of the Yampa Valley, I would like to thank the community for making our sixth annual Back-to-School Fair a great success.

Our major sponsors, The Colorado Trust, Wal-Mart of Craig, and Central Park Management, supplied the bulk of resources needed, both financial and physical, to create an event that reached nearly 250 children and their families.

Community members and groups, such the Memorial Regional Health, and businesses like Styles 5th Avenue, Pepsi Beverages Company, Fun and Crazy Party Planners, and Elkhead Supply, also contributed supplies, services, or funds needed to complete the day.

The backbone of the event was organized by The Journey at First Baptist Church’s dedicated volunteer, Cindy Reynolds, and her team, who collected the materials, then built the backpacks filled with school supplies that were distributed at the event.

The Craig Police Department, Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, and so many other agencies, churches, and Love INC board members and volunteers were present to interact with the children and provide information about their services, while playing fun games!

Thank you to everyone who participated or donated — there were so many, there is not enough room to list everyone. Your help was vital and so much appreciated.

Pat Jones, director
