Letter: Thanks for investing in most vulnerable children

By January 3, 2017Uncategorized

Winter has arrived in all its radiant beauty. Coats and Boots would like to thank all the philanthropic individuals and businesses who generously donated to their effort. It is because of you that our Poudre School District students living in poverty will be afforded the benefits of outdoor winter playground fun for months to come.

You made their goal of outfitting 900 students at 22 PSD schools a reality. 100 percent of your donations reached our local youngsters who live in need.

A very special thank you goes out to The Fort Collins Coloradoan, Phase 2 Company, Jax, Chipping Fore Charities and Fort Collins Sertoma Club, Northern Colorado United for Youth, High Country Beverage, Ken’s Muffler Shop, Kaufman & Robinson Inc., First National Bank, The Human Bean, Fort Collins Breakfast Rotary, Overland Sertoma Club, Foothills Rotary Club, Dennis and Noreen Houska, Hillside Construction, Big O Tire, Book Center of the Rockies, Woodward Inc., Bowl Fort Collins, Community First Foundation, Scott and Julie Melbye, Bullfrog Wine and Spirits, Dan and Martha Larsen, Raw Urth Designs, Gerald and Connie Horak, Flood and Peterson Insurance, Samaritan Class at First United Methodist Church, Michael and Barbara Paddack, Rocky Mountain Battery, Valley Steel and Wire Company, Thomas Mills, Fort Collins Lions Foundation and the many we are unable to list.

Thanks to North Fort Collins Business Association (NFCBA) and Jax for continuing to lead this endeavor. Next winter season, Coats and Boots will extend their reach once again — no needy child in PSD will be left out in the cold. The children thank you and are grateful for helping to keep them warm while waiting at bus stops in the freezing cold, while playing on a snow-covered field with their friends and for just being able to bundle up like the other kids and enjoy the brilliance of our Northern Colorado winter weather.

Thanks for remembering our kiddos. They are the future. They are worth investing in, and you have made that crystal clear. Always feel free to send your donations to NFCBA, P.O. Box 115, Fort Collins, CO.

Jeannie Craft, Fort Collins
