As Steve Maraboli says, "With one kind gesture you can change a life. One person at a time you can change the world. One day at a time we can change everything." Telluride Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties knows the spirit of giving and volunteering within the community on a year round basis, from the Mountain to Desert Ride that supports the Just For Kid's Foundation, Adopt-A-Pet event for Second Chance Humane Society and this year's 2018 Angel Baskets.
Angel Baskets was founded in 1981 to provide help at the holidays for several local families who were struggling financially. Throughout its 35 year history, Angel Baskets has remained flexible, expanding geographically and adding new programs to meet changing needs. Angel Baskets now operates four programs (Food, School Supplies, Elder and Holiday) in San Miguel County, the west end of Montrose County and the Dove Creek area of Dolores County.
Angel Baskets remains an all-volunteer organization with no overhead and no paid staff. The three food bank spaces are donated, as are the storage and holiday spaces. Read more here, if you want to get involved like the local Coldwell Banker Distinctive Property Agents.
