File of Life®
2000, Assistance League Greeley started the File of Life
philanthropic program. The File of Life program provides a free
large red magnet packet for the refrigerator, as well as a small
red packet for the wallet or purse. These packets are
distributed throughout the community of Weld County at Channel 9
Health Fairs, senior groups, the clients at the Bargain Box
Thrift Store, and numerous other venues.
The files are
filled out by individuals in pencil so that changes and
additions can be made. The files contain the individual's
important medical information for emergency purposes. These File
of Life packets contain information about the individual's
health problems, emergency medical contacts, medications,
allergies, and additional information.
2016-17 fiscal year, 2,825 files
were distributed through a budget of $2,540.
