SPY’s ‘Happy to Help’ raising funds for Colorado flood victims

SPY

SPY made some big moves this past week to help the victims of Colorado’s devastating floods, donating $30 from every pair of sunglasses sold on their website to the Foothills Flood Relief Fund. The fund works to provide aid and shelter to families and individuals severely effected by the floods. Now, SPY — and Colorado — are looking for your help. Help support the victims of this natural disaster by donating to the Foothills Flood Relief Fund for yourself.

All the details provided in the press release from SPY:

CARLSBAD, Calif.— SPY® was Happy to Help raise funds over the past week for the victims of the Colorado flooding by donating $30 from every sunglass sale on www.spyoptic.com. The funds went directly to the Foothills Flood Relief Fund in their efforts to provide aid and shelter for the victims and families of those affected by the devastating natural disaster.

During the span of nine days in September, heavy rains drenched the entire state of Colorado with a record 9.08 inches falling in Boulder County within a 24-hour period. County rainfall totals for central Colorado reached over 20 inches—the yearly average—over the 10-day weather event causing some rivers to exceed flood stage for 60 hours. With over 12,000 people under mandatory evacuation, an additional 1000 residents were rescued in dangerous flash flood conditions in the biggest airlift operation since Hurricane Katrina.

As the flood waters continue to recede and damages are assessed statewide, the residents of Colorado look to rebuild their lives and communities with the winter season approaching. Please join SPY in providing a helping hand to support our brothers and sisters in Colorado by donating to Foothills Flood Relief Fund during this critical time.
