A giant thumbs up to Ryan Behm, Northern Colorado Shares, Inc., and many wonderful volunteers for all that they have done for Irish Elementary in the past several months. This generous organization fulfilled teacher wish lists, purchasing things that teachers need to work with their students. They also purchased 6 large magnetic white boards that were installed in several classrooms. This generosity has benefited teachers and students this school year. In addition, Northern Colorado Shares gave each of the 67 teachers and staff a gift card to the restaurant of their choice as a token of appreciation for their hard work. It was so kind of Northern Colorado Shares to acknowledge and appreciate the teachers at Irish. What a wonderful way to give back to our Fort Collins community! -- Rebecca Schkade, Title I Lead Teacher and Interventionist at Irish Elementary School and Sarah Sanchez, First Grade Teacher at Irish Elementary School

My Name is Ashley and I am a single mother of a wonderful boy named Tristan. He is 4 years old. My entire life I can only remember having one or two christmas trees with the lights and the decorations. We still celebrated christmas, but it wasnt the same as the others. My mother had to work 2 jobs to support us and she always had to work on christmas. I was never upset or mad that we couldn't have a tree or celebrate on christmas. When I had my son I was technically homeless even though I lived with my mother. For the past 4 years we were unable to really celebrate christmas with a tree and all the fixings. Now that I am living on my own and in college and doing the best that I can for my son and I. Things are begining to look up. I got a tree donated to me and now I don't have to worry about the decorations thanks to NOCOShares. Thank you so much. I can't wait to see the look on my sons face when we decorate our very first tree. I am in tears(of joy) as I am writing this. I have so much to be greatful about and this is one of them. I can't wait to try and volunteer next year.
