Color Me Weld Program

 
Sad as it seems, many children fall victim to violent crimes. Assistance League Greeley’s mission is to help these children, by way of diversion, while they wait in the hospital emergency room for treatment or other necessary observations. By coloring, the children can focus on something other than the trauma they recently experienced.  

Though the Color Me Weld program began with the needs of these young victims in mind, at the request of hospital nurses and staff the program has expanded to include all children in trauma or need. This year 302 children were helped by this program.

A special thank you goes out to Human Bean Coffee shops for helping Assistance League of Greeley support this much needed program. The Human Bean set up collection boxes at each of their coffee shops, inviting customers to contribute coloring/activity books along with crayons and colored pencils in support of the Color Me Weld program. The response was overwhelming, and 12 full boxes plus money donations were delivered to Assistance League of Greeley in February, 2018.
