LOVELAND — Mountain View Presbyterian Women recently selected SummitStone Health Partners as the recipient of the church’s annual Thank Offering. Nationally, the Presbyterian Women have raised more than $25 million since 1988 for non-profits and ministries that assist those struggling with illness, marginalization and lack of access to education, services and resources.

SummitStone Health Partners provides Larimer County with mental health and substance abuse treatment and therapy services. The organization serves more than 10,000 community members each year, a third of whom are children and adolescents.

“Having representatives from SummitStone come and talk to our congregation really brought a light to the critical services they provide in our community,” said Susanne Evans, MVPW Treasurer. “Every year our Thank Offering is about collecting money, but it’s also about building community awareness.”

MVPW will hold its annual Rummage Sale March 2-3 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2500 N. Garfield Ave. Proceeds go to non-profits in Larimer County, including the church’s Blessed Beginnings project, which provides cribs and layettes to needy families.
