Generous Colorado Gives Day response will heat many homes and hearts

 

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our caring supporters, Energy Outreach Colorado raised a record $104,673 yesterday during the 8th annual 24-hour Colorado Gives Day campaign.

These gifts will go directly to helping thousands of Coloradans stay warm and safe in their homes and have greater access to energy-efficient affordable housing and services from nonprofits. 

“We’re greatly appreciative and humbled by the giving spirit of Coloradans to help their vulnerable neighbors and friends,” said Skip Arnold, executive director of Energy Outreach Colorado. “We thank each person who contributed so we can help struggling families and seniors keep up with their home energy bills, provide emergency service for households without working heating systems, and weatherize more limited-income homes and apartments and the nonprofits who serve them.”

 Overall, the Colorado Gives Day online fund drive raised an all-time high of $36,129,285 – about $2.3 million above last year, according to organizer Community First Foundation.
