Christmas spirit is alive and well

This year, here at STOR-N-LOCK we started a Christmas tradition by partnering with Eagle County Child Protective Services for a new program called “Christmas Toys for Girls & Boys. The plan was to collect gifts in the form of new unwrapped toys for some of our local children who could really use some joy this Christmas.

For an inaugural event, we could not have imagined the extent of the giving spirit exhibited by our community and some of our local business leaders. This truly exemplifies the very meaning of Christmas.

I would like to take a moment and send my deepest gratitude to our community and also to these fine folks, who without their help this could never have been made possible: my bosses at STOR-N-LOCK for being so supportive, Melissa Barbour and staff at Eagle County Child Protective Services, Pam Boyd and the Free Enterprise, Kevin Brubeck and Jill Buttermore at Edward Jones, Michelle Vesquez and the kids at Gypsum Creek Middle School, Habitat for Humanity, Slifer Smith & Frampton, Community Banks of Colorado, the fine folks at Napa and everyone who made Christmas possible for some very deserving kids.

So, for anyone who doesn’t believe in the spirit of Christmas …S Just look at your friends and neighbors and have faith in the fact Christmas spirit is alive and well here in Eagle County.

Merry Christmas to all!
