Christmas for Kids December 15, 2018
Christmas for Kids is a Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation annual fundraiser and is a VERY SPECIAL way we help deserving children and their families enjoy Christmas. Many of the kids we help come from inner-city homes; nearly all are from single- parent households and are without resources or means for Christmas gifts – making the holidays a very difficult time. For the 28th year in a row, Denver Active 20-30 members will“take to the aisles” at a Target department store with more than 150 special children for aholiday shopping spree! These kids will arrive wide-eyed at the store at 6 am with a mission (and budget!) to shop for Christmas gifts for their families. After the shopping is complete, Santa flies in on a helicopter to cap off the amazing morning.
About Us: For more than three decades, Denver Active 20-30 has been changing the trajectories of children in Colorado through financial grants to organizations that directly support at-risk, disadvantaged children in our community. Our members perform an extensive grant application and review process that allows us to strategically distribute funds to have the greatest impact.
Last year, nearly 5,000 Coloradans were hospitalized with the flu. Get your vaccine soon so you don’t become one of this year’s statistics.
The American Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming has partnered with Alpine Bank in their efforts to provide financial support for Red Cross Disaster Relief that has allowed the Red Cross to respond to a wide variety of disasters in Colorado and Wyoming.
In July, more than a dozen fires burned all over the state of Colorado, including the Lake Christine Fire, in Basalt, the 416 Fire in Durango, and many others. During that time, dozens of people stayed in Red Cross shelters to escape the threat of wildfire. Over the course of a few days, hundreds of warm meals and snacks were distributed and communities came together to support those impacted by wildfire.
When the matching donation effort was complete, it resulted in $304,000 being donated that included a generous donation of $95,000 from CoBank as part of the campaign. That final number activated the matching goal of $250,000 to bring $554,000 to disaster relief.

The grassroots work we do focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by: delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, and reaching out to those individuals who have lost someone to suicide.
