Colorado Flood Survivors Need Your Help
Flooding of great magnitude has hit Colorado. Relentless rains poured down for days and flash flooding ensued, crashing down canyons and flooding everything in its path. Over 1,500 homes have been destroyed or damaged, and thousands of survivors have been evacuated. The rescue effort has been the largest since Hurricane Katrina. Sections of roads have been washed away, and the residents who live up in the high country are not able to get down to safety, and are being rescued by helicopter. Once brought out, they will not be able to return home until the roads are rebuilt, which may take up to 12 months or more.
Adventist Commuity Services Disaster Response (ACS DR) volunteers are responding to this disaster with compassion. They are quickly working in cooperation with cities, counties and the state with donations management. ACS DR is collecting much needed emergency supplies, such as cleaning supplies (flood buckets), personal care items, blankets, along with other items, and distributing them to the flood survivors. Even if the survivors have not lost everything to the floods, they may not be able to return to their homes for months. They will not only need emergency supplies, but they will need supplies to help them with living in temporary housing until they can return to their homes or until their homes can be repaired or rebuilt.
ACS DR personnel are working with the City of Loveland to open a Collection/Distribution Center.
Monday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Sunday 1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
ACS DR has partnered with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who donated supplies including but not limited to: hammers, tarps wheel barrow, clean up kits, shovels, food items, and water.
