The floods in Larimer County in September 2013 have destroyed or damaged thousands of homes and displaced countless residents in Estes Park, Loveland, and surrounding communities. We have seen an incredible outpouring of support from people and organizations across the country who are committed to helping our neighbors in this time of great need. Thank you to the thousands of people and organizations that have given time, dollars, food, clothing and shelter to support flood survivors.
Now that we have moved into the recovery phase of this disaster, the need is far from over. Although stories of the floods may fade from the headlines, many flood survivors have a long road back to stability. There is still much you can do to help. Below is an updated list of opportunities (as of 9/25/13) to volunteer and donate that will help flood survivors throughout the recovery phase.
Many in our communities here in Larimer County have lost so much, and we know they will not be made whole overnight. There will be unmet needs that our community can address over time. The Long-Term Recovery Fund will be used to see that individuals and families facing ongoing hardships are not forgotten in the weeks and months to come.
All donations to the Long-Term Recovery Fund will be used to support long-term recovery efforts to rebuild lives and provide stability to individuals and families affected by the flooding in Larimer County. United Way of Larimer County is serving as the fiscal agent for the Fund. To learn more, click here.
The arrival of unexpected material donations can interfere with response efforts. Donate ONLY those things that are requested by officials and bring them to the official designated collection centers. Items not needed may go to waste and get in the way of recovery efforts.
