FirstBank + Carbondale: Giving for Good - Aspen Real Life

FirstBank + Carbondale: Giving for Good

Over the past few months FirstBank has had the pleasure to be the presenting sponsor of First Fridays Carbondale. Building on the time they have had to mingle with, and learn about their new home, they are excited to announce “Giving For Good,” a community outreach program that partners with two of Carbondale’s well-respected organizations.

Giving for Good:

Here’s how it’ll work. For the entire month of September, visit the Carbondale Creamery and Café (assuming this is already a daily routine… it is for them). For every latte or cupcake purchased, FirstBank will donate $5 to Ascendigo Autism Services, up to $5,000. We recommend ordering both, double the impact, double the flavor.

A little about Ascendigo:

This Carbondale-based nonprofit is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Ascendigo provides opportunities for growth and independence for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Ascendigo’s mission is to elevate the spectrum by empowering people, inspiring lives and shattering expectations. The organization provides opportunities for recreation and adventure in the outdoors, skills development and coaching, vocational and residential support and in-home behavioral therapy for individuals with ASD. 

Join FirstBank in supporting these wonderful organizations. So the next time you’re washing down a homemade cupcake with a latte, don’t sweat the calories. Find comfort in knowing you’re contributing to a nonprofit devoted to empowering individuals with autism to live a life with dignity, purpose, and respect.

FirstBank believes this is the beginning of a lasting bond between FirstBank and Carbondale, a town that embodies their philosophy of ‘banking for good’ for their customers, communities, and employees.

By October of this year, FirstBank will be making their debut in the Town of Carbondale, Colo. In what marks their seventh year in the Roaring Fork Valley, this will be FirstBank’s third branch, adding to the Glenwood Springs and Aspen locations. Located in the heart of Carbondale (791 HWY 133), they look forward to continuing their relationship with the amazing folks of this uniquely beautiful community.

It's amazing the treasures one finds when one slows down to take an old pup out for daily slow walks. Having been up in Aspen for 5 years, I forgot about this old Fairview Cemetery that Loki guided me to where I discovered Merino Fiou: Merino Bruno Fiou, AKA “Mr. Basalt”, born July 29, 1940 in Glenwood Springs and died March 6, 2011 at Valley View Hospital.This from the Aspen Times: A constant staple of the Town of Basalt, Merino was always on the search for a treasure that few of us cherished. He had a love of hats and was always seen wearing a different one. He walked many miles each day back and forth into town.Many local merchants of different stores knew him by name. Merino was very proud of his money jar that he accumulated by turning in his aluminum cans that he collected. Merino had many jobs throughout the years including trash pickup and working at Two Rivers Cafe washing dishes. He liked to help out wherever needed, even volunteering when they built the playground. Merino was very fond of River Days and loved to listen to the music in town. With a constant smile on his face, he was very friendly and never knew a stranger. Merino loved the annual yard sale at his house, looked forward to sifting through all the stuff, he found a treasure in things that other people threw out.Did anyone know Merino?#iseenya#mrbasalt#coolcemeteries ...
