Warm Up Weld County Program

 
In 1993, Assistance League of Greeley implemented its Warm Up Weld County philanthropic program. The goal for this program is to purchase and distribute new blankets to pre-selected individuals and families identified by Weld County agencies, organizations, and schools.

Funding for this program is provided by Assistance League of Greeley's yearly budget, grant funds, fundraising, and generous donations.

 

During the 2018-2019 fiscal year, 2,400 blankets and sleeping bags, and 340 throws totaling over $17,050 were distributed by Assistance League of Greeley members to 29 schools and 16 agencies and organizations throughout Weld County.

Assistance League of Greeley supports local businesses when purchasing the blankets. We thank Wal-Mart and Greeley/Evans School District 6 for their partnership in this program.
