I'm new to this forum. I live in Loveland CO. I would really like to utilize my jeep in the flood cleanup.

well in the wake of the flood there are some bigtime needs that we can help with. thw Weld food bank is running out of food and needs us to step up. Talk to everyone you know and get some goods and we will load up our rigs with as much as we can and convoy to Greely to drop off. The Evans area is all but gone and there are a lot of others that need help along the Hwy 85 Corridor. and I know we can make a difference.
meet at 10 AM
Mile High Stadium Parking lot Main entrance.
Tribune Opinion: In wake of floods, we must help Weld Food Bank meet the need | GreeleyTribune.com

Chad: If we somehow could get the food by Friday night, I'm heading up to Greeley anyways on Saturday for a testing at the jail and the food bank is right next door. I'll be leaving home Friday after work (1800).

We can't make the Sat run up there, but if anyone from Colorado Springs is going up, I'd be happy to get some food to you to carry up for us.

With all the help that is pouring in from everywhere we decided that we are going to refocus our efforts. If you have donations then please take them to the dept of revenue 1881 Pierce St entrance B Denver and give it to the Boy Scouts. They will be taking the donations down on Saturday. Thanks to those that have offered help.

Sorry Curt, since you were the only one who posted up, we thought we would just take ours there and save some gas. We are looking for some other way to help. We will let you know...

The Boy Scouts will take the donations up Saturday.

Thanks!

Speaking off floods, I was driving up highway 34 towards Estes Park. Saw this little service road and decided to check it out. Pretty cool little road. Here's a pic. Also follow me on Instagram to see more! Instagram: lmestes97
