Donate for the holidays at Pony Expresso

The Pony Expresso in Dolores is issuing a "Giving Challenge" to customers and the people in Montezuma County. The business is collecting donations of items needed by The NEST Child Advocacy Center and The Bridge Emergency Shelter. People who bring in a donation, will get 15 percent off an order. Here are the items needed: Stuffed animals, blankets, board games, gift cards for any grocery store (to buy items needed for the Shelter), bowls (10 or 12 oz.)

The stuffed animals, blankets and board games can be used but should be in good condition. This will run through Dec. 21 so donations can be delivered before Christmas.
