Rep. Summers Announces Colorado Gives Day

DENVER—Today, State Rep. Ken Summers joined Community First Foundation to announce Colorado Gives Day.  Colorado Gives Day will start at midnight on Tuesday, December 6th. During this 24-hour period, Coloradans are encouraged to donate to their local charities. 
“Even during tough economic times, Coloradans have always found a way to open their hearts and help those in need.  That’s no different this year,” said Summers, R-Lakewood. 
People can donate to Colorado Gives Day by visiting http://www.givingfirst.org.  Republicans in the House of Representatives have been asking people to visit the website to contribute to their local food banks, but people can donate to a wide variety of charities, including schools, faith-based organizations, cultural centers and more.  
“I encourage everyone to visit givingfirst.org to make a donation to their favorite charity.” Added Summers, who is CEO of Teen Challenge of the Rocky Mountains, a faith-based recovery program. “In 2010, Colorado Gives Day raised $8.7 million.  We hope we can beat that number this year.”
