TLWC’s Spring Food Drive to benefit Tri-Lakes Cares will be held Saturday, April 24th from 10am to 1pm at the Monument Park & Ride at the corner of Woodmoor Drive and Hwy. 105. Look for the white van along the edge of the lot with Billie Healy’s and Cindy Beley’s smiling faces and open arms.
Additionally, you can drop off your items starting Monday, April 19th to Billie Healy’s house (16072 St. Lawrence Way in Promontory Pointe) or Cindy Beley’s house (18555 Augusta Drive in Woodmoor). Billie and Cindy will have a box on their porch for you to place your items.
The Tri-Lakes Cares website lists many items that are needed. We’ve compiled some of them to the right. There are many more Tri-Lakes residents who are in need of our help this year so we hope to see you there with whatever you feel you can donate.
Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated. Cash can be donated during the drive.
Checks should be made payable to Tri-Lakes Cares (or TLC) and can be donated during the drive or sent to TLWC, PO Box 669, Monument, CO 80132.

The Caring in Action interest group has been providing bag lunches for working homeless neighbors in need at the Springs Rescue Mission. Each month we make 40 to 50 lunches that include a sandwich, chips, fruit, drink, and sweet treat. We then deliver them to the mission to be given to those that are heading out to work. For more information on how you can help, members can contact leaders Charlie Ann Hayes or Ann Cook on the CIA Home Page.

TLWC Makes a Difference in the Community
Tri-Lakes Women’s Club Community Grants Program has provided over $1 million in grants to nonprofits, public service agencies and education. The program focuses on smaller organizations that typically do not have the staffing or resources to pursue grants from major granting foundations. These grants fund important and highly impactful services to the community. Click on the article below for a sampling of some of our most recent grants.

We met our goal!!
Our first ever virtual fundraiser to find out who you love best, cats or dogs, raised over $10,000 to add to the total of granting money we can distribute this year.
A huge Thank You! to all of you who helped us with the contest. We very much appreciate your support by entering your pets, voting, and telling others about the contest. It meant so much for our success. - Linda Vernon, Committee Chair
Our Holiday Giving Tree Was a HUGE Success!
Our club’s generosity went a long way to help families celebrate the holidays. Tri Lakes Cares was able to serve 138 kids and 54 seniors with their requested gifts as well as provide more than 155 households with a holiday meal due to TLWC members. This is a significant achievement amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite social distancing measures and transitioning to an online format via SignUpGenius for the first time, TLC was able to distribute more than 1600 gifts, gift cards, socks, games, and food items, which is an 85% fulfillment rate (compared to 1330 gifts distributed in 2019 at a 76% fulfillment rate). This amounted to approximately $30,000 worth of goods and services provided to families in need through the Giving Tree program. Most importantly, everyone who requested gifts was served this year!
