Ways to Support Greenwood During the Holidays

In the spirit of giving, we have compiled a list of all the things you can do to help Greenwood with our mission of rehabilitating and releasing orphaned, injured, and sick wildlife this holiday season. 

1. AmazonSmile

As you shop for gifts this season, remember to use AmazonSmile and be sure to designate your charity of choice to Greenwood Wildlife! The AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to us!

2. King Soopers

When planning holiday dinner, keep wildlife in mind by linking your King Soopers alternate ID. When you connect your account, the market will donate money to our cause based on the amount you spend! You don’t have to spend one extra penny. To link your account:

  1. Go to the King Soopers website.
  2. Login to your account or make a new account (it’s free).
  3. Mouse over your name in the top right corner and click “My Account”.
  4. Once on your account page, click “Community Rewards” on the left hand side of the page.
  5. Search for Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center or enter “NW288”.
  6. Click “Enroll”.

3. Donate your vehicle

Do you have a vehicle that you no longer need? You can donate your car, truck, boat, RV, trailer or another vehicle on behalf of Greenwood Wildlife. Pickup is free and your donation is also eligible for a charitable tax deduction!

4. Sponsor an animal

Have a favorite species you love? One of the most supportive things an animal lover can do is make a contribution toward the care of our wild patients! By sponsoring an animal at Greenwood, you provide support for necessary enclosures, specialized diets, and medication for them. In return, you will receive a personalized certificate with your sponsored animal’s name and photo as well as the story of how the patient came to our Center. The certificate makes for a great gift! Learn more.

6. Merchandise for your animal lover

Maybe you’ve rescued an animal this year or you just love the work that Greenwood does! You can purchase apparel with our wild designs online. A portion of proceeds benefits the wild patients in our care!

7. Greenwood 2022 Calendar

Our 2022 calendar is up for grabs! Ogle over 12 months of stunning photos taken of patients cared for at Greenwood. Stop by the Center in Lyons to pick up yours for $20 or get one shipped to you for $3 extra!

8. Donate – take advantage of tax-deductions!

Greenwood Wildlife is a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization (Tax ID: 84-1228158). Take advantage of the tax deductions that come with donating to a nonprofit! Donate before December 31st and use your tax-deductible donation to help us provide care to wildlife in need!

9.Wildlife proof your home while hanging lights

If you are hanging lights on your roof anyway, why not take the time to trim a few branches? This is the best time of year to cut trees because wildlife will not have babies in nests. Take the time to trim them now, and you can also prevent potential wildlife conflict in the spring! Find other Winter Wildlife Proofing tips here.

10. Buy gifts from our Thrift Shop & Consignment Gallery

Our Thrift Shop and Consignment Gallery always has something to offer for anyone on your list! Browse hand-woven rugs, sparkling new glassware, fine jewelry, and much more. Not to mention great holiday-related decor for your family get-togethers. Scroll through the online gallery. Visit the store in Boulder off of Arapahoe Ave. (We have reduced hours and new guidelines so please check our website before stopping by.)

11. Use sustainable wrapping and decorations

Who needs loads of glittery paper that clog our trash cans and plastic ribbons that tangle wildlife? Try wrapping gifts in reusable options this year to minimize your waste and prevent wild animals from being entangled! Use old fabric from sewing projects (or find some at our thrift store!), paint paper grocery bags or newspaper, and tie bows made of linens! Need a few ideas? Check out this board on Pinterest!
