Everyone seems to have a fun Christmas photo with Santa Claus, but how often can you grab a funny photo with The Grinch?

Your chance is coming up December 13 at Colorado Canyons Hospital & Medical Center at 300 W Ottley Ave in Fruita from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Christmas cookies will be provided by the great people at Flavors Grille. Photos with the Grinch are available for a suggested donation of $10. This fun photo op is actually a very cool way to help brighten Christmas for a senior right here in the Grand Junction/Fruita area. The $10 suggested donation for each photo will help benefit the Family Health West Foundation. These folks partner with businesses in our community who actually fo out and shop for gifts for seniors who otherwise may be alone for Christmas.

So often we think of grandparents around the tree with the kids on Christmas, but there are plenty of seniors who for one reason or another will not be around any family members this year. Family Health West Foundation helps to make sure that in exchange for the fun holiday photo with the Grinch, seniors at The Oaks, and The Willows Secured Assisted Living, will receive something special for Christmas this year.

For more information on helping our seniors this holiday season as a sponsor, you can contact the foundation at 970-858-2132 or visit fhwfoundation.org.

Merry Christmas to all!
