Estes Park United is a fundraising campaign led by community volunteers and administered by United Way of Larimer County. The goal of the campaign is to raise $20,000 by September 30, 2015 to invest in local nonprofit programs focused on helping local children succeed in school and life.
The recipient organizations were selected by steering committee volunteers through an application process based on their program's contributions to three areas that are critically important to helping children succeed in school and life: school readiness, early literacy and youth success.
"Investing in our own community is a no-brainer, especially when it comes to our kids. By doing so, we are also giving them the future opportunity to do the same, ” shared Amy Hamrick, new this year to the Estes Park United volunteer committee.
Donations to Estes Park United will be invested in four local nonprofits: Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success (EVICS), Estes Park Kids Café, The Estes Park Learning Place, and Partners Mentoring Youth.
“Donations will provide critical support to children and families who need it most,” said Nancy Almond, Director of Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success, one of the nonprofits benefiting from the Estes Park United campaign. “When we invest in children in Estes Park, we are ensuring a brighter future for all of us.”
Several special events are planned as part of this year's Estes Park United campaign, including:
“We truly see this as an investment in the future of Estes Park,” said Chuck Levine, Estes Park United steering committee member. “Through the early intervention and support activities of our local nonprofits, we can take steps to ensure that our children grow up to be contributing members of our community.”
Donors can contribute to the campaign online at www.EstesParkUnited.org or send donations to PO Box 2651, Estes Park, CO, 80517.
