GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — School District 51 Foundation serves as Timberline Bank’s non-profit of the month for February. The non-profit was selected for its continuous contributions to area schools.

Being the active host, representatives from the foundation work the bank’s coffee bar, handing out a variety of cookies and beverages while discussing their mission with visitors.

“Opportunities like this, at Timberline Bank, are wonderful to help generate funds but also generate awareness for what the foundation is doing in our community,” Angela Christensen reflects.

“They’re serving up great coffee this morning, having conversations with out community members, and welcoming people to our bank,” Hannah Ellis explains, “We’re grateful to be part of the 5-Star Variance Program for Mesa County so that we can have community members and host events like this one,” Gionna Elari shares.

The School District 51 Foundation dedicates to raising funds for its students and teachers enhancing the learning environment. Today’s donations from the coffee bar add up to $376.57.
