As you know (because we’ve been saying it a lot and then some), it’s baby season at Greenwood! You also know that we really, really (for real, really!) need your help keeping up with supplies in caring for these little orphaned wild ones. We are excited to say that we’ve made it super simple and convenient to shop online for these babes. There are now three online baby registries at retailers where you can click and shop for in-kind donations of our most-needed baby shower wish list items:
Donations may be shipped directly to the Center at 5761 Ute Highway, Longmont, CO 80503. You may drop off between 9AM and 4PM daily (and then we get to see your kind face and give you in-person gratitude!). Our sister Thrift Shop & Consignment Gallery (3600 Arapahoe in Boulder) will also accept baby shower items during business hours.
This baby season we are expecting more orphans than ever before. The recent closing of a wildlife rehabilitation center in Colorado Springs leaves Greenwood as the only center on the Front Range that takes orphaned mammals, songbirds, and waterfowl. It takes a (Front Range) village to raise these wild ones and we need your help more than ever to give them a second chance. Thank you for your kindness, compassion, and all you do for our wild neighbors. We are all in this together.
