Soroco gift-wrapping fundraiser offered Friday

Students from Soroco High School will be offering gift-wrapping services as a fundraiser from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at City Market in Steamboat Springs. Funds from the project, organized by the leadership class and student council at the high school, will be used to buy Christmas gifts for a needy family.

Student council sponsor Tammy Gilleland said the students hope to raise between $250 and $300 for the family of four that the students adopted through Routt County United Way. Any additional funds would allow the students to adopt more families, she said. The students also will hold a gift-wrapping session from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday at Soroco High School. Prices will be based primarily on donations, Gilleland said.

Survey will evaluate Routt County child care needs

First Impressions of Routt County is inviting local parents of children from birth to 5 years old to fill out a survey about child care needs in the county. By completing the 20-minute survey, respondents are entered in a drawing to win $100 in Chamber Resort Association gift certificates. The results of the survey will be presented to Routt County commissioners during a Jan. 28 meeting. First Impressions Early Childhood Manager Stephanie Howle said she hopes to reach a majority of parents in the area. The responses will guide the organization’s efforts to meet child care needs, Howle said. First Impressions requests that families fill out only one response each.
