The 2022 Give Where You Live in the Mountains Coalition members:
Join in on Colorado's statewide movement! On the first Tuesday of December since 2010, Coloradans have come together to support the nonprofits that make a difference in our lives. Colorado Gives Day has grown to be Colorado's largest 24-hour giving event, raising more than $362 million for nonprofits across the state since it began. ColoradoGives.org is home to Colorado Gives Day, and your one-stop shop for making good happen for our community.
Community First Foundation, FirstBank and other community partners from across the state want to make your support of Colorado nonprofits go even further. Every donation made from November 1 through December 6 on ColoradoGives.org counts towards Colorado Gives Day and gets a boost from the $1.4 Million+ Incentive Fund!
"When we moved to Pine Junction, my husband, Edward, had been diagnosed with brain cancer. Within days, Suzanne came over from Mount Evans to start his physical therapy. Because I suffer from macular degeneration, a Mount Evans volunteer, Liz, began coming every week to read to us.
When Ed reached the point where he needed hospice care, two nurses came regularly to make sure he was comfortable, and when he died, his nursing assistant, Brenda, arranged everything. I felt so ‘looked after’! Even though Ed is gone, I haven’t ended my relationship with Mount Evans. They took wonderful care of me after I underwent hip-replacement surgery years after we started with Mount Evans, Liz still comes by every week to read to me." - Margaret C.
"I consider Mount Evans my extended family. The wonderful and caring staff has been with me through three deaths over the years. My first husband, died in 1995 of cancer, loved and supported by the Mount Evans nurses who had worked with him over the years in the medical field. After his death, I began volunteering at Mount Evans and found my niche on the bereavement team. I’ve enjoyed being a part of the angel making, making decorations for the yearly fundraiser, and numerous other jobs.
When I lost my son to a stroke and my second husband who passed from with complications from Parkinson’s disease, the speech therapist, nurse, social worker and CNA were skilled caregivers to my loved ones at the end of their lives. The compassion shown to me and my children helped us beyond measure. I shall always support this great organization and am forever grateful and thankful for the role that Mount Evans has played in our mountain community and in my life." - Sue H.
