Breckenridge schools receive more than $12,000 from Merchant Program


Grand Timber Lodge and 80 merchant businesses donated a total of $12,957.08 to four local schools in Breckenridge. The donation is made by the Grand Timber Lodge Merchant Program that bestows 5 percent of its redeemed gift certificates to local, nonprofit organizations. The recipient schools are Little Red School House, Carriage House Early Learning Center, Upper Blue Elementary and Breckenridge Elementary, with each school receiving a check for $3239.27.Since the program’s inception seven years ago, Grand Timber Lodge and the participating merchants have donated more than $65,000 to the community’s schools. The Merchant Program helps the schools with some needed financial assistance and, at the same time, puts about $400,000 annually into community businesses through the collaborative merchant certificates issued by Grand Timber Lodge. Rob Millisor, vice president of Grand Timber Lodge stated, “once again, we’d like to extend a big thanks to all of the participating merchants who, through their participation in this program, share our commitment to supporting the education of our community’s children.”
