Giving For Good succeeded in its second year in Carbondale, Colo. During October, FirstBank and two Carbondale eateries, Carbondale Creamery and Café and Dos Gringos Burritos, collaborated to raise funds for local Roaring Fork Valley nonprofit, Stepping Stones. For each croissant/latte purchased from the Creamery and burrito purchased from Dos Gringos, FirstBank donated $5 to Stepping Stones. 

We are happy to announce that, thanks to the overwhelming support from the Carbondale community, we achieved our $10,000 donation goal. The “Giving for Good” campaign was the Carbondale Creamery’s final contribution to the community, as they closed their doors on Sunday, Oct. 18, after helping ensure we exceeded our donation goal.

Stepping Stones is a community-based youth mentoring program that operates drop-in centers for youth and young adults in the Roaring Fork Valley. Their philosophy is that strong, long-term relationships with positive adult role models are the key to empowering youth and their families within the community.

The donation will go to Stepping Stones’ capital campaign, which will help fund renovations to their youth centers. The new facility will include a wellness center to improve youth’s social, emotional, mental, and physical health, and a large kitchen, capable of preparing hot meals to nourish participants.
