The Windsor-Severance Re-4 School District did its part in helping the flood victims during a two-day donation drive, Sept. 20-21, at Windsor Middle School
Desiree Sandoval, School To Work Alliance Program (SWAP) coordinator, organized and disseminated the supplies that were donated. According to Re-4 superintendent Karen Trusler, one side of a modular building was filled with donations.
So many individuals, businesses, school staff, school groups and parents without hesitation donated their time and resources to help others, Trusler said. Supplies were taken to areas in Milliken, Kersey, Greeley and Evans.
Specific examples of items delivered directly to people in need were:
» Diapers, toiletries, blankets, baby wipes, toys to Milliken
» School supplies, backpacks, baby wipes, diapers, toiletries, disinfectant wipes to Kersey
» Backpacks, school supplies, toys, packaged underwear, new socks to Greeley-Evans School District 6 (Bella Romero Elementary, Dos Rios Elementary, McKinney Vento Program)
» Water and medical supplies to Greeley Recreation Center, which was set up as temporary shelter
» Water to Greeley Distribution Center at Journey Church
» Water, diapers, baby wipes, baby formula to Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church, which is set up as a regional distribution center
» Clothes, toys, shoes, books, food, cleaning supplies, water to Zoe’s, which is a regional distribution center
Trusler said SWAP, or Windsor Works Alliance, a program that develops workplace skills in high school students and recent Windsor graduates, is grateful for all of the donations and help, and the district was also grateful for Windsor Works Alliance in leading this effort.
