From SERVE 6.8 Help bring immediate and long-term relief to the victims of the Northern Colorado floods.

Share this Campaign
The flood of 2013 has devastated Northern Colorado and now we find ourselves looking for the most effective and productive ways to serve our neighbors to best help them recover and move forward.  The immediate concern of food and shelter for flood victims has been met.  Now the focus is long-term recovery efforts.

SERVE 6.8 is committed to a long-term solution of rebuilding our community.  The issues are complex and involve not just the rebuilding of homes, but also resourcing and equipping residents.  We learned many lessons in the aftermath of the 2012 High Park fire and understand the challenges  victims face as they move forward in rebuilding and restoring their homes and properties.

SERVE 6.8 will be working collaboratively with local and national agencies to fill the gaps in services needed and to provide our neighbors with solutions that help them restore their lives.  We are well equipped to meet the changing needs that will be part of this long-term process.

Please consider supporting Long Term Flood Recovery through SERVE 6.8 as we stand alongside our friends and neighbors in Northern Colorado.

What is happening?

Hundreds of people in our Northern Colorado community have been affected by the mid-September floods and are in need of immediate and long-term assistance. Timberline Church has served as an evacuation center where over 125 volunteers from SERVE 6.8 have gathered to provide food, clothing, blankets, and other items to over 140 affected people. As of Sept. 13, 2013, SERVE 6.8 also received an additional 80 people at the Timberline evacuation center who had been residing at Catholic Charities, which was also evacuated due to flooding.

What is SERVE 6.8?

SERVE 6.8 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to share God's love in tangible ways in Northern Colorado with no strings attached. SERVE 6.8 has partnered with the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and Larimer County Sheriff's Dept. to provide relief for the victims of the Northern Colorado Floods. SERVE 6.8 worked closely to bring immediate assistance and long-term rebuilding support to the victims of the High Park Fire.

What is SERVE 6.8 doing to help in the relief efforts?

SERVE 6.8 is currently on the ground providing immediate assistance to those in our community who have been displaced by the floods to meet their practical needs such as food, shelter and clothing. We are preparing to lead Northern Colorado in the long-term relief efforts of clean up and rebuilding. The cost to cover expenses for both immediate relief and long-term recovery efforts is estimated to be over $165,000.

What can I do to help?

SERVE 6.8 is not about what we can do alone in the community, it's about partnering with those in our community to make a difference in peoples lives. We need each other to make this all happen. There are three practical things you can do to come along side us in our efforts to serve our community:
