Donations for Children’s Hospital
SF Financial Services is accepting donations for children at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders Children’s Hospital Colorado. The gift drive will accept toys, clothing, and hygiene items. SF Financial Services can provide you with a detailed wish list from the children if you would like to pick up something specific. Monetary donations are also being accepted to purchase gifts that do not get donated. For more information, call 597-2179. The names of everyone who donates a gift will be put on an angel and hung on a Christmas tree, and at the end of the drive all of the names will go into a drawing for a $100 gift card. Gifts should be unwrapped and dropped off by Dec. 23 at SF Financial Services, 7560 Rangewood Drive, Suite 110.
Every last Tuesday of the month the Apartment Association of Southern Colorado holds a 9 a.m. coffee chat at the AASC office, 2790 N. Academy Blvd., Suite 227, to encourage property owners, managers and vendors to come and discuss the AASC’s goals, membership, education, and events. For more information, call 264-9195.
