Gratitude inspires giving at Grand Mesa Youth Services Center
Five youth from Grand Mesa Youth Services Center (GMYSC) recently gave back to the community by helping to alleviate child hunger. As an extension of the youths’ discussions about practicing gratitude, GMYSC reached out to the Kids Aid Colorado Program. Kids Aid is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing for the needs of children, with a focus on supplying food to hungry kids. In collaboration with Mesa County School District 51, their Backpack Program sends food donations home with children who otherwise would go hungry over the weekend.
