MINERAL COUNTY— Silver Thread Public Health District would like to take a moment, as the season of giving and receiving approaches, to extend a very special thanks to an important donor in the community. Alpine Ministry, located at the Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort off of Airport Road, has been an instrumental and consistent donor to the Mineral County Public Health Food Bank for several seasons.
The resort is not open year-round, so in that light, Alpine Ministry puts an enormous effort into providing bags upon bags of groceries for the food bank from June through September. In addition to that generous benefit, the members of Alpine Ministry have donated sizeable funding that continues to help provide food and health Everyone at public health and those in the community using these services are in awe of such giving and generosity.
Tara Hardy, director of Silver Thread Public Health District wrote back in September: “Al & Jimmie of Mountain Views RV Park Alpine Ministry stopped… and once again provided such an amazing outpouring of support for our community. The generosity of everyone involved in Alpine Ministry adds tremendous value to so many among Creede. This round of donations included support for our local food bank AND a huge contribution to our Senior Lunch Program. Thank you all so very much! We truly appreciate all that you do!”
Those at Mineral County Public Health have had the opportunity to see firsthand how many lives are impacted by this type of selfless giving. One recipient, who recently visited the food bank, told office manager Janet L. Reynolds that Creede is especially beautiful and plentiful in the blessings many receive. She said, “I’ve visited other areas, but none display the enormous kindness and generosity that I feel in Creede. I don’t use it (the food bank) all of the time, but when I’ve needed it, it’s been amazingly helpful and there’s a huge amount of positive presence every time I visit!”
Often, many find themselves in moments of need, and sometimes they are lucky enough to be givers to those who are in need, but no matter which situation in, hopefully, they find happiness along the way. Public health is thankful for the gifts the community is continuously blessed with. Thank you, Alpine Ministry, and all others, for your act of giving!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
