If you have such equipment, please contact Gabrielle or Nicole, the managers of the Briar Rose B&B in Boulder, and they will help arrange for you to drop it off there. You can call them at 303-442-3007 or email It will be stored at the B&B and then taken to Crestone.
Any equipment we cannot use or store will be passed on to La Puente in Alamosa, a homeless shelter, family assistance program and food bank that is grateful for any used items they can sell to help finance their programs.
