Bridge Foundation Assists Residents in Colorado following historic flooding

Tuesday, 17 September 2013 00:00

NEW CANAAN, CT -- Bridge Foundation, the New Canaan, Connecticut-based humanitarian relief organization, delivered two tractor-trailer loads of bottled water to residents of Boulder and the surrounding vicinity following the relentless rains causing mudslides and unprecedented flooding.

 

After more than a week of torrential downpours, the current toll is eight confirmed dead and almost 700 still unaccounted for. More than 4,500-square-miles of Colorado's Front Range have been devastated. Thousands have been forced to evacuate their homes and thousands of homes and farms have been destroyed.

As the massive flooding has washed out pumping stations and many wells, potable water is high on the list of what is needed. Today, two truckloads of approximately 75,000 bottles of drinking water will be delivered to emergency response teams to distribute to people in need. Bridge will continue to coordinate with local responders to determine additional needs.

"Bridge Foundation is proud to be able to deliver at least some relief to the people of Colorado during this difficult time," said Managing Director, Gary Galanis.
Working with corporate partner, Diageo, the two truckloads were en route to Colorado while the rains continued to cause havoc. Although there has been a reprieve in wet water across the area, the devastation has been overwhelming.

Bridge Foundation will have staff on the ground to help coordinate distribution and to assess further needs.
