Color Me Weld
Sad as it seems, many children fall
victim to violent crimes. Assistance League Greeley’s mission is
to help these children, by way of diversion, while they wait in
the hospital emergency room for treatment or other necessary
observations. By coloring, the children can focus on something
other than the trauma they recently experienced.
Though the Color Me Weld program
began with the needs of these young victims in mind, at the
request of hospital nurses and staff the program has expanded to
include all children in trauma or need. This year 302 children
were helped by this program.

A special thank you goes out to
Human Bean Coffee shops for helping Assistance League of Greeley support this much needed
program. The Human Bean set up collection boxes at each of their
coffee shops, inviting customers to contribute coloring/activity
books along with crayons and colored pencils in support of the
Color Me Weld program. The response was overwhelming, and 12
full boxes plus money donations were delivered to Assistance League
of Greeley in
