Spirit of giving

The main reason I still want to live in Durango is the generous spirit from parents who work two to three jobs and still donate to helping the less fortunate, such as Womenade, part of a program sponsored at our Women’s Resource Center.

For a community the size of La Plata County, there is a phenomenal number of nonprofits. This inspired me to recently make an appointment at age 70 to add a condition to my will that, after my passing, my East Third Avenue home will be dedicated as a multi-unit rental for employees that work for blue collar wages in honor of my grandson with cerebral palsy.
