Montrose, CO— The staff at the Montrose County Child Support Services office raised $1,250 for Kids Aid Montrose, an organization that provides backpacks filled with food to food insecure children on the weekends. The funds were raised through a bake sale, donation-based drawing, and Frito pie luncheon. The staff also received donations from local businesses.

"I am so proud of the hard work and dedication of our staff," said Child Support Service Manager Christine Sorenson. "This is our favorite time of year, and they went above and beyond to raise money for this worthy cause." Kids Aid Montrose provides backpacks filled with food to children who are food insecure on the weekends. The backpacks contain healthy snacks and meals that will help children stay nourished until they return to school on Monday.

"We are grateful to the Montrose County Child Support Services staff for their generous donation," said Mike Bussing, Executive Director of Kids Aid Montrose. "This money will help us provide backpacks to even more children in need."

The child support staff chose to give back to the community in honor of Child Support Awareness Month. Child Support Awareness Month is a national observance that promotes the importance of child support in ensuring the financial security of children. "We are committed to helping children in our community," said Sorenson. "We are proud to support Kids Aid Montrose and their work to provide food to food insecure children."
