How to Help

Help Colorado Now unites volunteers throughout Colorado with high-risk individuals to ensure nobody falls through the cracks during this crisis.

Make a cash donation to the Westminster Legacy Foundation, which uses donations to support local food banks and pantries and to buy gift cards to supermarkets, which volunteers who are delivering food to high-risk individuals use to buy the necessities.

Donate blood: Due to a critical blood shortage locally and nationwide, blood donation is especially vital right now. If you're able, please donate blood in Westminster at Valiant, 960 W. 124th Ave., or find a location on the American Red Cross website
