How You Can Help The Colorado Flood Victims

September 23, 2013

flood​Transwest is a proud Colorado company, and with a location in northern Colorado, we've seen firsthand what the devastating floods have done to the area. Thousands of homes and buildings have been destroyed, and people are still missing. But when natural disasters strike, we can all rise to the challenge and respond positively. Here are just a few of the ways to help that we've found.

The Red Cross. The Red Cross has sheltered displaced Coloradans, as well as provided hot meals and snacks. They've also mobilized volunteers from other states to come out and help with the relief effort. The Red Cross is a nonpartisan humanitarian organization that provides disaster relief and education all over the world, and can always use the easiest way to help: money. To donate to the Red Cross, you can simply text REDCROSS to 90999 for a simple $10 donation. You can also donate via their website, or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.

The University of Colorado. If you have a student at CU, or just want to contribute to the campus rebuilding effort of one of Colorado's best schools, you can donate any amount via the website link above.

Habitat For Humanity. With so many homes damaged and destroyed, the real key to recovery will be the actual work of building and repairing homes, which is something that Habitat for Humanity does all year, every year. To donate to the Flatirons Habitat for Humanity, just click the link.

If you're fortunate enough to help, thank you on behalf of the entire Colorado community. And if we missed a great opportunity to help, please, let us know on our Facebook page.
