If you’re traveling abroad or to domestic areas hit by measles outbreaks, make sure you and yours are vaccinated. Aren’t sure if you’re previous vaccinations still protect you? We’ve got all sorts of helpful information.
The American Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming has partnered with Alpine Bank in their efforts to provide financial support for Red Cross Disaster Relief that has allowed the Red Cross to respond to a wide variety of disasters in Colorado and Wyoming.
In July, more than a dozen fires burned all over the state of Colorado, including the Lake Christine Fire, in Basalt, the 416 Fire in Durango, and many others. During that time, dozens of people stayed in Red Cross shelters to escape the threat of wildfire. Over the course of a few days, hundreds of warm meals and snacks were distributed and communities came together to support those impacted by wildfire.
When the matching donation effort was complete, it resulted in $304,000 being donated that included a generous donation of $95,000 from CoBank as part of the campaign. That final number activated the matching goal of $250,000 to bring $554,000 to disaster relief.
