To help those at a serious disadvantage caused by Hurricane Sandy along the East Coast, Summit County’s Habitat will donate 10 percent of its Restore’s gross sales during the month of January 2013. While there will always be pressing needs in our local community, the shock of Sandy on so many makes this contribution the least that we can do from here. The Restore is located on the north side of Interstate 70, at the Silverthorne westbound entrance to I-70. The store hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, Monday through Saturday. Restore: (970) 423-7445.

For further info about the Summit County Colorado Habitat, contact executive director Nancy Shockey at, or, regarding our Restore in Silverthorne, contact store manager Frank Steen at

The films instill a deep appreciation and a sense of wonder for the natural world that surrounds and supports us. Our anchor films include “Chasing Water” and “Save the Farm.” All proceeds benefit HC3, and tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Visit or call (970) 668-5703 to purchase tickets.”
