It's been a while since you've seen an update on this page. For us, like many this year has been a rollercoaster full of unexpected events. Our team at Bit of Sunshine spent a lot of time looking at each other absolutely stumped on what we could do to help the amount of sickness, hurt, loss and misfortune that has come to our community as the pandemic continues to effect us. A lot of our traditional methods of fundraising aren't going to be possible this year. Nevertheless, we are looking forward on the next few months with hope. The holidays are coming and everyone could use some good old fashion cheer.
We understand that with hard times upon us, it can be difficult to find yourself in the position to give, but you may also find that it's just what you need to turn your spirits around. We can do this, together.
We will be hosting a garage sale, getting rid of some gently used things on Friday September 18th & Saturday September 19th 8am to 12pm at 27683 Winchester Trail in Silver Spur, Steamboat Springs and 100% of proceeds will go directly to Bit of Sunshine, so we can get started on our Christmas Magic, as always there is a link to donate on our webpage, but please stop by, we look forward to seeing all of you.

The leaves are falling in Routt County and it reminds us of the exciting season to come. The Christmas season will be here before you know it.
Last year, your donations helped us fulfill every wishlist item and put together gift baskets for each of the families to enjoy.
This year, as always, we are reaching out to our community for help. We truly believe that the joy is in the giving. Any donation helps– no matter how small. Last year we were able to expand and put up 6 giving trees in Steamboat and Hayden. These trees had paper ornaments with a specific request on each ornament. Making it easy to contribute to someone’s Christmas joy.
Please consider making a donation to help us make this season bright for even more families this year.
Keep your eyes open for more updates as we get closer and closer. We cannot tell you how excited we are to watch our community come together again this holiday season.
