2000-Greg Osteen joined Vail Valley Cares in 1998 as Executive Director and the stores were beginning to make money.  So after consulting with  Benny Clark, one of the men that started VVC, we began giving grants to local non profit organizations in the Vail Valley.  Benny always wanted to give back to the community!  This was the best way to contribute and let people do what they know how to do and help them help others!

Hence, here is a list of what we've given over the years!
