Mesa County Partners on Colorado Gives Day
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - With many organizations and companies taking part in Colorado Gives Day, through either an event or as an incentive, Mesa County Partners mentions it is a big day for them to receive donations.
MCP is an organization that helps kids and young adults overcome challenges in life and become more successful in the future. Mesa County Partners did not have an event or an incentive on Colorado Gives Day, but instead stated they accept donations any time of the year. They do this through three different programs, including mentoring, restitution, and Western Colorado Conversation Corps.
The public can donate to MCP in money donations or with item donations like bikes or camping supplies.
“The funds that we receive will go to our daily operations, making sure that we can provide activities for kids, we do activities year-round for the kids. Also we have a restitution crew,” said Blake Ammon, MCP Mentor Programming Manager.
In addition to donations from the public, MCP also does fundraisers year-round, and other companies will sometimes dedicate a check to MCP.
“Colorado Gives Day is once a year, but we do numerous fundraisers throughout the year. So we have an annual auction every fall, so people with businesses donate things, and we auction them off. That is all online. We have a cornhole tournament we usually do, late spring-early summer,” said Ammon.
