1000 Words: Colorado Mountain College giving elves
Colorado Mountain College employees and daughter-mother Emma Axelson (administrative technician) and Mary Axelson (professor of developmental education and studies) were among the college’s many Christmas elves this year. In the Roaring Fork Campus’s fourth annual toy drive, employees brought toys to the campus Christmas party, some of which are pictured here. Students attending the Learning Labs in Glenwood Springs and Carbondale, as well as students from the Gateway Program, were then allowed to pick out gifts to give to their children. In all, college employees donated close to 1,000 pounds in canned goods to community food banks, “adopted” local families in need by providing food for a holiday meal and gifts, and donated to charities like the Wounded Warrior Project and Camfed.
