Letter from the Executive Director

Thank you for visiting LIFT-UP’s website, where you can find information about our activities throughout the region, and read about how the local community comes together to care for our neighbors in need.  LIFT-UP is in its 33rd year of service in our area, and we remain committed to our mission of providing essential humanitarian assistance in the communities we serve, from Parachute to Aspen.

LIFT-UP is the collaborative effort of many caring people, churches, businesses and granting organizations that work together on behalf of struggling local families, to assist them during times of temporary hardship.  Even though there has been some improvement in the local economy over the past year and more people are finding jobs, there are still many who seek assistance from LIFT-UP’s seven area food pantries each week, and come to our Extended Table soup kitchens for a good meal, or shop at our thrift stores to spend less on the things they need.  We help bridge the gap until people can get back on their feet. 

Whether you can donate food, or volunteer a few hours per month, or help with financial support–every contribution is greatly appreciated and means so much to the people we serve.  As long as there are people in need, and a community that cares, LIFT-UP will be here to help.

Executive Director
