A Precious Child’s Flood Relief Efforts

on September 30, 2013

We all rustled through our closets to pull out our raincoats and dust off our rain bootsImage to face rain last week. We’re glad for the dry weather this week and welcome the sunshine with open arms. For many, the rain was more than just a nuisance to travel to work and run errands in, but was a devastation to their home and businesses within their community. Although the rainstorms have come to an end, the reconstruction of damaged roads, buildings, and other establishments has only just begun. A Precious Child saw this as an opportunity for our volunteers to lend a helping hand in any way possible. We sent out a plea to our A Precious Child family for donations to support the victims of the flood. We collected donations of funds and goods and dropped off pillows, blankets, and board games to the Boulder YMCA, one of the Red Cross shelters. We also setup a table alongside Red Cross, Salvation Army, FEMA, and other organizations to distribute vouchers, which allowed families affected by the flood to get needed supplies from our resource center. The response we have received from our community members has been uplifting in this troubling time. With continued support and time, we will not only rebuild what we have lost, but also become a stronger and more connected community. Until then, it is safe to say that we all hope for sunnier weather in the weeks to come!
