Help us Reach $30,000 Matching Funds
The Glenwood Springs Sunset Rotary recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken to control it have resulted in serious economic impacts to our community, including reduced incomes, closed businesses and resultant job losses. The Rotary Club members are encouraging those who have a little to spare to help out those in need during these trying and uncertain times. To help, the club and its members will match up to $30,000 in donations made to LIFT-UP, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which provides food and other essential items to those grappling with the pandemic and its consequences.
Our community has a strong history of taking care of its most vulnerable, and consistent with that, the Sunset Rotary Club and its members previously donated $22,500 at the beginning of the pandemic to give those in need "a lift up." However, the duration of the pandemic continues and there is a continuing and urgent need to provide food and necessities to those struggling at this time.
Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world's and our community's most persistent issues. The club and over 35,000 others around the world work together to:
Fight diseases such as Polio
Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene nationally and around the world
Support education through scholarships
Impact our community by mentoring and supporting nonprofits
