FirstBank Brings Back ‘Giving for Good’ Campaign to Support Carbondale Business and Nonprofit, Stepping Stones

FirstBank is teaming up with Carbondale’s New York Pizza to raise funds for local Roaring Fork Valley nonprofit Stepping Stones. For each Philly cheesesteak purchased from New York Pizza between October 11-31, FirstBank will donate $10 to the nonprofit, up to $5,000.

FirstBank, one of the nation’s largest privately held banks with a focus on “banking for good,” is teaming up with Carbondale’s New York Pizza to raise funds for local Roaring Fork Valley nonprofit Stepping Stones. For each Philly cheesesteak purchased from New York Pizza between October 11-31, FirstBank will donate $10 to the nonprofit, up to $5,000.

Stepping Stones is a community-based youth mentoring program that operates drop-in centers for youth and young adults in the Roaring Fork Valley. Its mission is to cultivate strong mentoring relationships and community spaces, and to foster personal growth, compassion, and responsibility for youth ages 10-21.

“The pandemic has emphasized how important community support is, especially for our youth populations,” said Kyle Crawley, Executive Director at Stepping Stones. “We are grateful for the support we’ve received from community partners, like FirstBank, whose contributions help us deliver critical services such as nightly meals, educational support, and skill development.”

This year’s “Giving for Good” campaign follows FirstBank’s contribution of $10,000 to Stepping Stones’ capital campaign, which helped fund renovations to its youth center. The new facility includes a wellness center to support social, emotional, mental, and physical health.

“We are proud to support Stepping Stones’ mission of youth achievement and empowerment,” said Dave Portman, FirstBank Roaring Fork Valley Market President. “We’re grateful to New York Pizza for teaming up with us and are excited for the community to get involved — all while enjoying a delicious meal.”

The happiest Hayman one ever did see!We once had a beautiful home that we built in this valley. That labor of love was just sold for 2M more than what we built it for 17 years ago. This was our home where we thought we would grow old in. Awwww well ... mustn't live in the past now must we? Our house may be gone but the memories of our boys living wild and free on our land will remain, as will that magical basin where we can visit whenever we want.#lessonslearned#patience#magicalbasins#aspenreallife#aspenblogger#ilovecolorado #mountainlife ...

Are you connected to P L A C E ?I recently stood on a slice of land that is protected in perpetuity by our Land Trust* . I felt awe to be part OF it.Sense of place is increasingly understood as a component of well being for self, community, and planet. In a modern time of known suffering from disconnect and abstraction, place is a pathway to recover presence. We were designed to be in small bands of people who rely on their place for food, water, shelter, tribe, and safety. Now we resource most goods and services, work and even relationships outside of any place ignoring the losses in our rush. If you don’t connect to a place, you can’t care for it. Buying local, slow food supporting real farmers, and learning about the other species who rely on your place to keep whole systems like rivers and migration corridors in tact for collective health are vital. Urban farming and place-based education are shown to empower communities with successful self reliance, making place relevant in any ecosystem or economy. I’m learning and sharing here, guilty of quick Amazon purchases and distance teaching every day. But when I stood struck by my roots here recently, a part of me remembers there is another way. I’m working towards it.* @aspenvalleylandtrust ...
