Meeker Sand & Gravel presented a $5,000 check to HopeWest-Meeker on Monday to benefit the organization’s new palliative care program in the Meeker area. The Conrados, who own Meeker Sand and Gravel, made the donation on behalf of their loyal customer base, wishing to give back to an organization that “will enhance the community and provide a much-needed service” to its residents. Owner Dan Conrado said, “We’re excited to be able to support the community in this way. This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our community and giving a little something back that will make a difference for a lot of people.” From left to right, in the back row are: Ellen Conrado, Dan Conrado, Hope-West Advisory Board Member Toby Smith, and Katie Conrado.
