Colorado Honor Telethon: Thousands of wreaths needed for veterans’ graves

KRDO presents Colorado Honor Telethon

Each handmade balsam fir wreath costs fifteen dollars, so you can make a big difference. To donate now, visit here.

A Colorado Springs-based charity is on a mission to decorate the graves of thousands of veterans with wreaths.

Friday, November 8th, KRDO will be taking part in a telethon to raise money to buy wreaths to place on veterans’ graves in El Paso County.

"It's a symbol that they will not get forgotten," said David Bolser, CEO of Senior Veterans.

Bolser says the goal is to get a wreath placed on every single veteran's headstone that's buried in the state of Colorado.

It's something that may seem like everyone would want to take part in, but unfortunately over the years it's proved difficult.

"In 2017, I think we had enough wreaths for about half of the gravestones here in Colorado Springs, in terms of disappointment, it breaks your heart," Bolser said.

Or you can also donate Friday during our televised telethon that will run from 8 a.m.- 6:30 p.m. and will be held at Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center.

If you would like to donate a check during the telethon, it's important to make it out to "Colorado Honor".

  1. Wow, look at all of the paid advertising American furniture warehouse paid for, they even have an actual news article. i thought i accidentally misclicked and went to American furnature warehouses website. KRDO doesn’t even manage their own advertisements that clip their of functions…When advertising takes precedence over everything else, this is what we get from our news source. Thanks KRDO. If I need a couch I know where to go.

    1. @Citizen Cain: I only logged in here to ask you why you are still hanging on like grim death to this new loser look.IF you insist-at least download and use Adblocker Plus- and block all that crud. I always have- then you can really tell how bland boring and lifeless this website is. It’s A JOKE-even more so now. They get most of their news elsewhere. FARM TEAM LEVEL>

      1. Yeah FCN, I am a glutton for punishment. I demand better and either they will provide the fixes we request, they will allow me to post my criticisms, or they will boot me. Win win in my boot, just takes time.

        1. notice there is no CONTACT US link on the site anywhere at all?? BWAHAHA-they could give a FF about what the readers think. I also read another major ABC affiliate online’s presence and they just suddenly switched to this very same death-white platform as well in the last day or so. Hmmm… someone wants to control…INFORMATION!
          Forget about having an open flowing conversation anywhere in regards to news items of the day. They have found a way to disrupt the flow of any intelligent talk-many of our previous discourses actually disclosed facts that displeased those who rule. You think there might be some truth in that, do you?? I am banned from posting at the other site-because I am not afraid to name names.TRUTH.

          1. We reached each other, perhaps someone else will read our posts and create enough of a awareness. I think we both could be in agreement that the truth is only acceptable when it matches the agenda that the author is pushing for, and when the truth is inconvenient, then it is simply glossed over or a new story takes its place.

          2. lol they already are starting to restrict what articles we are and are not allowed to place a comment on. Evidentally i upset speaking out about Mr. Bloomberg, and that must have upset them. I wonder if this is because they may be funded by Bloomberg? I seem to recall a lot of their radio advertisements say Bloomberg a lot.
            anyways take a look here is the evidence of proof.

        2. LOL “comments are closed”
          censorship of the citizen’s voice at the least.
          Also, they are grabbing alot of CNN news and I noticed there is a restriction on commenting on those articles.
          They seem to avoid posting local political news alot.
          Try reading springstaxpayers dot com if you REALLY want to know what is going on with your stolen tax dollars in this town. Post what you think to The city council and Suthers facebook pages. Here’s a tidbit: I read a recent story posted elsewhere that our midget mayor was hidden in the back room of a club downtown on election night and he was jumping up and down on cushions on a chair about 2C. WHAT A PHOTO-OP. WHAT A LITTLE NAPOLEON !!

          1. Now they just removed and replaced this link, with a new article that doesn’t have my comment. Free speech hard at being repressed.
