How You Can Help
As most of you know there is major flooding in Colorado. Some news reports have called it a "1,000 year flood". It is still too soon to know what kind of support will be needed.
Recently, the website http://www.helpcoloradonow.org/ has been activated and is being published as a place for the public to get information as a way to volunteer. In addition, the website, http://www.crisiscleanup.org will be used as the tool to arrange teams to assist homeowners with cleanup and debris needs. Please be patient as we need to wait until the various emergency management organizations have completed their work in assessments before the crisiscleanup.org site is operational.
In addition, there are now 919 flood kits at the UMCOR Depot in Salt Lake City which can be sent out. There are also about 35,000 kits available at Sager Brown. It has been reported that there are already 14 pallets of flood buckets available in Colorado Springs which can alleviate immediate needs.
This website will be updated as more news is received so that you might know how best to respond and help. In addition, please check out the UMCOR (United Methodist Committee On Relief) at www.umcor.org for further information.
