Northwest offers ways to help victims of Colorado floods

As the Northwest Missouri State University and Maryville communities seek ways to assist victims of recent flooding in Colorado, the University invites people to consider a variety of ways to help those in need.

Emergency officials say a financial contribution to a recognized disaster relief organization is the most effective donation. Monetary donations allow organizations to fund response and recovery efforts, obtain goods and services locally, and provide direct financial assistance to disaster survivors to meet their own needs.

According to published reports, the flood conditions have impacted 17 counties and 1,500 homes have been destroyed. More than 11,750 people have been evacuated, and eight people have died.

Northwest’s Office of Volunteer Services has provided the links below to agencies providing assistance. For more information, contact Amy Nally, Northwest’s director of volunteer, service learning and civic engagement, at 660.562.1954 or
