Colorado Floods: A Year Later

At a recent press conference in Lyons marking the anniversary of the Colorado floods, Governor John Hickenlooper said, “The flooding that began nearly a year ago will be forever etched in Colorado history. But what will also endure is the story of how Coloradans responded."

You were an integral part of that response. Through the United Ways of Colorado Flood Relief Fund, you gave $1.2 million to help flood victims across the state.

These funds were distributed to meet critical housing needs in Larimer, Boulder and Weld counties. Support was also provided to Pueblo, El Paso (Pikes Peak), Gilpin and Washington Counties. Each United Way worked with their local communities to assess the housing needs and make decisions on how moneys are distributed to help those most affected in their respective communities. 

Colorado communities, along with United Ways across the state and supporters like you all came together in this crisis to help our fellow Coloradans in their crucial time of need. This is LIVING UNITED. Thank you for your support through both donations and volunteering to make such a difference in the flood recovery.
