TES Family Updates

We have the chance to support families in our community!

The holidays can be a stressful time for families and I invite you to help make someone's holiday a little brighter. TES has teamed up with Angel Baskets to collect items for families they are supporting this year. They have asked for the following donations for a special treat. If you can bring in an item, that would be a big help in filling these bags! We will have a big box for our donations on Monday! We will be collecting these all next week!

1 lb bag of popcorn

1 lb bag granola

14 oz can of hot chocolate

Telluride Truffle milk chocolate bar

8 oz bag of mixed nuts

8 oz bag of mixed dried fruit

4.5 oz hand soap

We appreciate your help!
