Meredith is the president and founder of Sleep Tight Colorado.
A Personal Note from Meredith:
Since announcing my decision to form a nonprofit, Sleep Tight Colorado, many friends have asked me where the idea came from and why now.
I have formed Sleep Tight Colorado to honor my aunt, Carol Taxon, of New York City who passed away in January of 2010. She was born and lived her entire life in New York and was active with various charities throughout her life. One charity she was involved with raised money to buy and distribute sleeping bags to the homeless. While I do not recall how long she participated with this group, the idea stuck with me over the years and I see the same need in Colorado.
I was visiting family in November 2010 and upon returning I knew I was ready to take the necessary steps to and make an idea that stuck a reality. With the support of my family and friends STC is now a reality.
