ThanksGVIN 2020 Event Results
Grand Valley Interfaith Network (GVIN) presented its annual ThanksGVIN Interfaith Celebration of Gratitude November 24 via a “virtual” service recording. It is now available on GVIN’s YouTube channel and their website. The theme was “Gratitude in the Midst of Crisis.”
This year’s recipient of all encouraged donations is Grand Valley Peace & Justice. Peace & Justice shared recently that donations received thus far are over $4,000. Additional contributions continue to come in and are welcome. For more information about this organization and to make a donation, visit: https://gvpeacejustice.org/ and follow the DONATE links.
The donations help Peace & Justice to provide food bags to those without a home, living in shelters or elsewhere. The demand is high, especially during a pandemic. Other organizations are also sharing in the distribution of food items: Volunteers of America (for Veterans), Center for Independence (for persons of disability), the Blessing Box at the UU church on Ouray, and Solidarity Not Charity (for homeless campers). In addition, Peace & Justice staff members distribute food bags whenever they can to people sleeping on Grand Junction streets and in parks.
