Again this year, the Elbert County Coalition Outreach (ECCO) (in Elbert, Colorado) is facilitating (along with some of our local sponsors, including our superb first responders; the Kiowa Creek Food Bank; American Legion; etc.) an annual Christmas for Kids. This initiative is to specifically provide outreach assistance to those individuals and families with children, who could use assistance with children/youth Christmas gifts -- during these most challenging times. Attached is the event announcement and application. The point of contact for any questions and/or application submission can be reached at ECCO (303-621-2599 or
