Without our clients or our community, AOR would simply not be the agency we have become today. Throughout the year, we have given back to our community through a variety of philanthropic efforts. Today, on Colorado Gives Day, we wanted to share a few suggestions for organizations you or your company can donate to–during this Colorado tradition.
