Update as of 2:20 p.m., May 5: Thank you to everyone for donating so far! We are one-quarter of the way toward our goal with over 50 gifts and we are excited that Clark's Market will be giving 50 emergency food bags to LIFT-UP.
Update as of 10:00 a.m., May 5: We sent out an email first thing this morning to announce our #GivingTuesdayNow campaign. For every gift made on aspenpublicradio.org today, Clark's Market will donate a bag of food to LIFT-UP to support families in our valley who are in need. Please help us meet our 200-gift goal and support two causes with just one gift. Thank you for supporting fact-based, trusted news (and our community) during #GivingTuesdayNow.
Aspen Public Radio would like to remind our listeners to mark your calendars for Giving Tuesday Now, a global philanthropy movement to support the non-profits in our community, coming up on May 5.
For every donation made to Aspen Public Radio on May 5 our friends at Clark's Market will generously donate a bag of food to local food pantry, LIFT-UP, to help support up to 200 families in our valley who are in need.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, our web traffic has increased by nearly 200%. We've been reporting on the stories that matter, from local restaurant workers navigating takeout operations to updates from healthcare employees on the front lines, all to give members of our community a voice and to keep you up to date on the critical safety information you need.
Support the critical coverage that you and so many others in our valley rely on; please donate on May 5 during Giving Tuesday Now.
Schedule your gift today by contacting Lauri Jackson, Office Administrator/Development Associate, at 970-920-9000.
