Thrift Shop grant and scholarship recipients
Sunday, June 9, 2013
Every month the volunteers of The Thrift Shop of Aspen meet to continue to accomplish our mission: to make grants to other nonprofit organizations in the Roaring Fork Valley. We are grateful to all the community members who continue to support our efforts by donating and purchasing gently used clothing and household items. For the months of May and June we are pleased to announce the following recipients:
Casa of the Ninth; Youth Zone; Roaring Fork School Health centers; Aspen Elementary School Summer School; Youthentity; Aspen Science Center; CMC, Family Literacy Program; Aspen Elementary School plays; Garfield County Public Library, Carbondale Branch; Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute; Wellspring; Roaring Fork Veterans History Project; Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklorico; Aspen Middle and High school bands; Response; KAJX-Aspen Public Radio; Theater Aspen School; Max Marolt Scholarship; city of Aspen Recreation Department; Aspen Historical Society; Sol Theater Company; Roaring Fork Music Society; Aspen Skating Club; Aspen T.R.E.E.; and Lift-Up.
Every spring the scholarship committee for The Thrift Shop of Aspen is honored to select recipients for college scholarships. It is a nearly impossible task to choose only five candidates from the dozens of highly qualified and worthy applicants. This year we are proud to congratulate the following students:
Aspen High School
• Elijah Alpern: University of California , Berkeley
• Steven Jace Conflenti: University of Colorado, Boulder
• Michaela Voss: University of Washington, St. Louis
Basalt High School
• Lindsay Corzine: University of Richmond
Roaring Fork High School
• Emily Eason: Sarah Lawrence College
We are able to continue to provide these generous awards due to the support of community members who donate gently used items and clothing and to the shoppers who purchase them.
