YouthZone is humbled with gratitude for the 1,870 donations that came from the Channel 9 News Word of Thanks feature with Kyle Clark.

Lori Mueller said, “This kind of support is what empowers us to continue working with kids and families. Each donation helps us make our community even stronger.”

Channel 9 featured YouthZone and two other nonprofits on the Western Slope, Friends of Youth and Gear Up to promote nonprofits that focus on mental health. The individual donations totaling $51,400 were paired with a “seed” donation from the Western Colorado Community Foundation’s Together for  Resilient  Youth Campaign of $5,000. The $56,400 will be split equally between the nonprofits resulting in an $18,800 donation for each organization.

YouthZone will use this funding to continue support and advocacy for local youth.  If you are interested in supporting this campaign, visit today.
