We had a ROCKIN’ time at our Rockin’ and Rollin’ with Gratitude event last weekend. The 2020 version (socially distanced and safe!) of our annual gathering where we celebrate our youth, families, and volunteers was a groovy success. We set up a drive-thru course with 4 stations for partnerships and families to visit to get goodie bags, special items, and a to-go meal. As a bonus, both locations featured boogying animals (staff and volunteers) all along the way. We had a whole zoo–a koala, a tiger, a flying squirrel, two foxes, a pig, a corgi, a giraffe, a gorilla, a penguin, and monkeys (both normal and sock)!
Between our Fort Collins and Greeley locations, nearly 200 cars full of our favorite participants came through. We are so grateful for the amazing Partners community that values supporting local youth and their futures!
These celebrations are so important in this time when many of us are more isolated than ever. Partners is committed to continue fostering connection and support in our community. If you want to help us continue providing these types of activities and you are in a position to give this year, please consider making a donation to our 2020 Spark Campaign.
Special thanks to Realities for Children for the use of their amazing facility, and to Walmart for providing gift cards to our youth participants to purchase gifts for their loved ones.
We are also so grateful to the following companies and organizations for providing goodie bag items: The Summit, Fort Fun, Chipper’s Lanes, Old Town Churn, Spoons, Colorado Youth Outdoors, Gardens on Spring Creek, Chick-fil-a, Luna’s Tacos, Wing Shack, Village Inn.
