We wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to our listeners in Northern Colorado for their donations to the American Red Cross last Thursday, September 19.
Between the 3 Walmart locations where our stations were collecting, as well as a matching donation from Boot Barn, we were able to raise $15,000 to go to the American Red Cross to go to flood recovery efforts. This money will stay in Northern Colorado as Colorado starts to rebuild after one of the worst natural disasters in state and national history.
The money raised will help stock the food banks both Larimer and Weld Counties, help provide supplies and support efforts at the Disaster Recovery Center, and provide families with basic needs as they start to rebuild their lives following the flooding.
As search and rescue efforts come to a close, the arduous task of rebuilding begins. Many of our neighbors lost everything, and towns such as Estes Park, Glenhaven and Drake are suffering.
We are providing resources and information to help Colorado Recover. Be sure to take a look at our Colorado Recovers page for the latest information, including ways you can help out, neighbors needing help, and other fundraising efforts statewide.
We want to thank Boot Barn for their generous matching donation. As a result of their contribution, more families in Northern Colorado will be able to begin the recovery process.
