File of Life®
2000, Assistance League of Greeley started the File of Life
philanthropic program. This program provides a free
large red magnet packet for the refrigerator, as well as a small
red packet for the wallet or purse. These free packets are
distributed throughout the community of Weld County at Channel 9
Health Fairs, senior groups, and numerous other venues. They are
available for free at the Bargain Box Thrift Store.
The files are
filled out in pencil so that changes and
additions in an individual's medications, health problems,
allergies, emergency medical contacts, and other information can
be made. Filled out and updated, these files will contain
important medical information for emergency purposes.
2018-19 fiscal year, 3,478 files
were distributed with a budget of $1,160.
