“Just knowing that someone outside the chaos cares, made all the difference in the world,” said Dan Laska, a Crocs employee, whose home was damaged in the flooding that left many Colorado residents homeless. Months after the storm, national attention has faded but the devastation remained, as the footwear industry rallies to provide crisis relief for footwear families in need.
The small town of Lyons, Colorado was just one of many towns devastated by the storm that dropped ten inches of rain on the region in 24 hours. “The river has moved 200 yards south, we have no power, gas, sewage treatment or water,” said Dan, who along with many of his co-workers were able to receive help from Two Ten, enabling them to find safe, dry accommodations while planning the next step. “I can’t tell you how much [Two Ten’s} quick response meant to me. Your offer was HUGE at a time when uncertainty was the norm.”
Natural disasters and personal crises continue to affect footwear families around the nation. You can help by donating and providing Two Ten with the funds we need to support our colleagues through difficult times.
