Many TRUU members contributed to Planned Parenthood via an online site after Garfield County Commission cancelled a $1500 county grant to Planned Parenthood. The commissioners said that Planned Parenthood had become “too political” to continue the county’s grant. The grant was specifically earmarked for cancer screening.
TRUU members Sue Coyle, Sue Edelstein, Kathy Feinsinger, Nicolette Toussaint and Mason Ingram turned out on Monday Nov. 16 with about 50 other local residents to hand a $25,000 check to Planned Parenthood in Glenwood Springs.
TRUU’s board has voted to give TRUU’s Sunday collection on Nov. 22 to Planned Parenthood.
