A rally was held Wednesday, December 4th at the Moffat County Courthouse to celebrate Yampa Valley Gives on December 10th.  Eight local nonprofits attended the event.

Donald Broom, Moffat County Commissioner, encouraged local residents to support nonprofits as it is good for the community and good for the soul. He provided several different reasons to give on Yampa Valley Gives Day.

Helen Beall, Community Impact Manager at the Yampa Valley Community Foundation, encouraged the group to share the power of philanthropy.  “Tell someone that you support local nonprofits and why you do it.  Don’t be shy about what you do. You won’t be shy about getting a new car or your kid getting straight A’s on their report card. You never know who will inspire to become a philanthropist!  Our communities will stronger and healthier if we come together to support the nonprofits that provide for our community.”

$500 was awarded to a Community Budget Center as part of drawing during the event.
