Aims Flood Relief
Aims Flood Relief Update (Sept 19)
Our heart goes out to our internal campus community who have been directed impacted by the recent flood. We are providing updates to multiple efforts by and for Aims employees and students as we receive them. If you have special needs please contact your supervisor (employees) or your advisor (students).
Please read the following information and check back to this site regularly in the coming days for updated information, links and resources!
Resources for Flood Victims
Thank you to the Aims Community College Student United Way Club and Student Resource Committee for a successful and very useful resource fair yesterday!
To clarify any confusion; there is no other resource event planned for today Sept. 19 at Aims.
However, if you have further needs here are several organizations who are able to assist you.
- United Way And Community Foundation Set Up Long Term Recovery Fund For Flood Victims
- Greeley – High Water Updates Sept. 15 12:00pm
- State agencies assist Coloradans in flooded areas
Foundation Offers Assistance to Aims Employees and Students
Aims faculty, staff, and students may qualify for emergency assistance. If you have suffered a loss during the recent flood and would like to be considered for support, you are encouraged to complete a 2013 Flood Relief Application Form by clicking on the special link on My Aims.
- Aims students can apply for textbook replacement through their Advisors.
- Aims employees may apply through the Human Resources Office at (970) 339-6670 and you will be directed to the proper individual handling these requests and the forms you will need to fill out.
The Aims Foundation is also accepting cash gifts for this emergency fund specifically designed to help Aims employees in need. If you would like to help our Aims community rebuild, please contact the Aims Foundation Office. Your gifts will be entirely tax deductible. You may make a one-time gift or choose to use payroll deduction.
Aims Employee United Way Campaign able to assist in Flood Relief
As many of you know, our annual Aims United Way Employee Campaign began on Sept. 16. Of course many of us would like to make donations directly to the flood recovery efforts, and fortunately, United Way can help.
If employees would like to make immediate donations to flood relief they can give to United Way and request that the donation be made to the Weld County Flood Relief Fund. This can be done directly through the United Way of Weld County, or it can be routed through the employee pledge forms that are available from your United Way Division Representatives (see below). Just fill out the pledge form and write Weld County Flood Relief Fund at the bottom of the form where it asks for Organization Name. Please note that for donations to the Flood Relief Fund, United Way is waiving the $50 minimum donation that is noted on the form.
Additionally, monetary contributions may be made by either calling our United Way Representative Verniece Thomas at (970) 339- 304-6171 or by going online to the United Way website at www.UnitedWay-Weld.org. Donations can also be made to the Larimer County Flood Relief Fund in the same manner.
As always, if any employees or students need assistance for themselves, family members or friends, they may call 2-1-1 or go to www.UnitedWay-Weld.org/2-1-1.
