Warm Up Weld County Program

 
In 1993, Assistance League 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 Greeley's yearly budget, grant funds, and individual donations.

 

During the 2018-2019 fiscal year, 2107 blankets were distributed by Assistance League Greeley members to 29 schools and 16 agencies and organizations throughout Weld County, totaling over $14,500.

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


Clients at the Immigrant and Refugee Center of Northern Colorado in Evans
show their delight with the new blankets they received from Assistance League Greeley.
