Disaster Relief Information

​Colorado is still recovering from flooding, and is still doing so even as it rained yesterday across much of the state.  Governor Hickenlooper has indicated that we need to work together to recover from this natural disaster.  If you would like to donate, here is an article that outlines where to best  do this:  http://www.denverpost.com/lifestyles/ci_24134427/benefits-services-aid-flood-relief-effort

 

In the meantime, there is help available to those who live in areas that have been designated natural disaster areas by the federal government.  So far it appears that the following counties have been declared as natural disaster areas: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Clear Creek, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer, Logan, and Weld.
