A Drop For Colorado

We all want to help. Some of us are close by and can lend a helping hand. Others are thousands of miles away, wishing they could do more. A group of Colorado businesses have collaborated on a design to raise money for the United Way’s Foothills Flood Relief Fund (https://www.unitedwayfoothills.org/node/310). Get a t-shirt and/or sticker and you’ll make a difference today. Besides the material costs of the t-shirts, every part of this project has been generously donated by the businesses listed below. Every penny raised will go to the Foothills Relief Fund. Thanks for your support.
