Warm Up Weld
In 1993, Assistance League
of Greeley implemented its Warm Up Weld County
philanthropic program. The goal for this program is to
purchase and distribute new blankets to pre-selected
individuals and families identified by Weld County
agencies, organizations, and schools.
this program is provided by Assistance League of Greeley's
yearly budget, grant funds, fundraising, and generous donations.
During the 2018-2019
fiscal year, 2,400 blankets and sleeping bags, and 340 throws
totaling over $17,050 were distributed by Assistance League of
Greeley members to 29 schools and 16 agencies and organizations
throughout Weld County.
Assistance League of Greeley supports local businesses when
purchasing the blankets. We
thank Wal-Mart and Greeley/Evans School District 6 for
their partnership in this program.
Clients at the Immigrant and Refugee Center
of Northern Colorado in Evans
show their delight with the new blankets they received from
Assistance League of Greeley.
