**COLORADO FLOOD RELIEF**
FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO VOLUNTARY AGENCIES RESPONDING TO DISASTERS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO HELP
- Cash allows disaster agencies to purchase exactly what is needed.
- To make a financial gift to the organization of your choice, dial 2-1-1 to get a list of reputable agencies responding to the disaster.
- Do not go to the scene of a disaster to offer help; the arrival of unexpected volunteers and material donations will 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 relief efforts
- It may take a few days to determine what items are needed and to set-up officially designated collection centers to receive them.
This semester the Student Activities Office will be providing multiple opportunities for students to become involved with their community through service events! It will be necessary for volunteers to find their own transportation to service sites, but most sites are right here in Greeley! Below are opportunities that are already lined up, and more will be added throughout the semester. For more information please contact Jimmy Kohles at James.Kohles@unco.edu
