Philanthropy – you hear the word, but may not know the true meaning behind it.  Philanthropy is defined as the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.  The concept of a generous donation may be a bit intimidating to your wallet; however, Greater Vail Community ReSources offers plenty of options for you to make an impact without breaking the bank.  ReSources Vail Food Bank accepts unopened nonperishable food donations and is currently in need of tuna.  They are located directly behind the Vail Depot Thrift Store on Colossal Cave Road.  The Vail Depot Thrift Store is accepting gently used clothing and household items and your purchases benefit both the ReSources Vail Food Bank and Vail Education Foundation.  For a budget-friendly monetary contribution, simply visit the ReSources website and select ‘Recurring Contributions’ under the ‘Give Back’ tab.  No matter what opportunity fits your style of philanthropy, your contribution will support ReSources and allow for ever-expanding programs that assist your community.   Find out how you can make an impact at
