MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) - Mesa County is asking for your help to make a difference in the lives of children who live in drug-endangered homes.

The Mesa County Meth Task Force is getting ready to launch its tutoring program for the second year. Volunteers are paired with a child and work with them for one hour each week on things like reading, writing, and math.

Current volunteers say the kids are great people who unfortunately have had to grow up in bad environments -- and giving up just a little bit of your time during the week can make a world of difference.

"If you have success in school, it's a lot less likely that you're going to be getting into trouble in other area," says spokeswoman Stephanie Rubinstein. "So it's very helpful."

The task force is holding a volunteer interest meeting Friday at the Old County Courthouse. It will take place on the third floor in Training Room A at 12 p.m.
