Warm Up Weld Program Awarded $10,000
from the Weld Trust of Greeley

Greeley, CO -- April 13, 2021 -- The Assistance League of Greeley has received a $10,000 grant from Weld Trust of Greeley. The grant money will be used to support the Warm Up Weld project. The project, is one of six philanthropic programs that the Assistance League of Greeley administers. The grant award will be used to buy blankets, sleeping bags, and throws. These items are distributed by Assistance League of Greeley volunteers to 29 schools, 16 agencies, and organizations throughout Weld County.

JoAnn McGrath, the Assistance League of Greeley president, was thrilled to learn about the Weld Trust award. “These funds are especially appreciated this year. We have not been able to keep the Bargain Box Thrift Store running, due to the pandemic, and are in critical need of funds to support our philanthropic programs. This Weld Trust grant will go far in making sure those in need will keep warm next winter.”

Additional funding for the Warm Up Weld Program is provided by Assistance League of Greeley's yearly budget that is raised from revenues from the Bargain Box Thrift Store and other generous donations.

The Weld Trust was formed through the sale of the North Colorado Medical Center to Banner Health in the fall of 2019. Through grants to nonprofit organizations, the Weld Trust aims to positively impact the health and education of Weld County.
