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.  

The Color Me Weld program assists the emergency staff at the hospital by supplying coloring/activity books along with crayons or colored pencils. The program is administered by Assistance League Greeley and also funded by the Weld County Victims and Law Enforcement (VALE) board.

A special thank you goes out to Human Bean Coffee shops for helping ALG 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 Greeley in February, 2018.
