Welcome, Autumn! Now Let's Talk About Winter
The leaves are changing colors and TLC is already preparing for the 36th Annual Christmas Tree Festival. We have ten trees ready to raffle and are looking for, oh, 50 more? If you'd like to donate a tree decorated with whatever theme makes your heart race, we'd love to have it!
So far we have tree forms in for trees that will be decorated with gear for welcoming baby, a tree thick with dump trucks & construction-themed toys, an autumn decor-themed tree, a spa tree, and more! Get creative and consider decking out and donating a tree for our Festival. All proceeds from raffle tickets sold to win trees go directly to helping TLC children and families. Download a tree form here and send it to Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org. Trees can be dropped off and set up at the Plaza Hotel a few hours before the event on December 2nd or 3rd. Myself? I'm dreaming of winning a yet-to-be-donated tree called "Netflix and Chill." It definitely includes gift cards to PJ's for wine (this idea is up for grabs if you need inspiration).
Or perhaps you or your business would like to sponsor the event? All sponsorship dollars benefit TLC families, and sponsors receive recognition leading up to and at the event. Download a sponsorship form here and get your logo in front of 800+ event guests and all TLC website visitors and e-news subscribers. Donations to TLC are tax-deductible as allowed by law and eligible for the Colorado Childcare Contribution Tax Credit. This credit means up to 50% of your donation can be tax-deductible.
Tree Fest, Got It! What Else is New?
On September 12th we welcomed volunteers from Twin Peaks Rotary Club for the Foothills United Way Day of Caring. Volunteers helped clean up our landscaping, mulched our playgrounds, and completed tasks in classrooms that ranged from repairing preschool chairs to disinfecting the ball pit. We love Day of Caring and our volunteers!
The Twin Peaks Rotary Club spent a day hard at work volunteering for TLC, and we are so thankful!
