Thank you Grand Junction! You make us proud to call you our friends and family! As a community, you came together to help strangers visiting our beautiful town that were victims of a crime.

Earlier today (April 17) we shared a story about a couple from Europe visiting beautiful Grand Junction and Western Colorado. The couple returned to their rental car after a long hike to discover their belongings had been stolen.

After sharing that story with you, you came together to help a couple of people you don't know, donating $730, luggage, some clothing and hygiene products.

What a way to show these tourists, and others that there may some shady people around, but the majority really care for the well-being of others. And for that we thank you.
