Do Something Good for Somebody Else – It Feels Good!
The Leadville Senior Center needs a volunteer driver for their Meals on Wheels program. The time commitment would be for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Deliveries are made at 11 a.m. and take 20 to 40 minutes depending on how long you talk to people. On average each person delivers to 5-8 meals. They could use some help, if that’s you, please contact the Senior Center at 719-486-1774.
Help Needed for Annual Leadville 9Health Fair
Did you know that the Leadville 9Health Fair location is one of the original 9Health Fair sites? It’s true. In fact, 2014 marks their 35th anniversary of serving the health of the Lake County region. For many in the Leadville and Lake County community, this annual event is their annual check-up, serving 400-500 people per year.
And this year, they could use your help. It doesn’t take much time, or all day even. There are shorter volunteer shifts and many of them DO NOT involve medical knowledge not interaction (i.e. you won’t have to take someone’s blood!)
Thirty-five years is a rich legacy of community service. But this year the 9Health Fair could use some help, as past volunteers have moved away or are no longer available. While the 9Health Fair is a non-profit, state wide organization that brings low-cost essential health screening to communities around the state, on the local level, it is run entirely by volunteers.
If you are able to give some time to this worthy cause, please contact Site Coordinator Heather Scanlon by phone 970-485-3556 or via email at email@example.com.
A 14 x 14 x 14 Project Update and How You Can Help
With all this fresh snow, it seemed like a good time to catch up with Rohan Ray, Outdoor Leadership Club Program Coordinator for Full Circle of Lake County and the 14 x 14 x 14 project.
Rohan and his wife Anna have established “Fourteeners For Teens,” a Full Circle of Lake County fundraising initiative to connect Leadville residents and visitors to the youth of Leadville who directly benefit from healthy and exciting activities outside of school.
The couple’s plan is to ski all 14 peaks above 14,000 feet in the Sawatch range of Colorado in a single 14-day unsupported traverse this spring, starting on (of course) 4/14/14! To continue with their theme, the couple’s goal is to raise $14,000 for Full Circle. Full Circle activities are free for participants, and are entirely funded by grants and donations.
