Old Town Media has mobilized to assist with COVID-19 relief efforts across the Northern Colorado community. Contributions include a $1,000 employee-led donation to the Northern Colorado COVID-19 Response Fund, and a supply of 250 hand sanitizers to Fort Collins Rescue Mission.
“Supplying these organizations with resources is essential to the continued vitality of our community,” said Miles Kailburn, co-founder and CEO of OTM. “It is imperative we support these operations to help prevent the further spread of COVID-19 and keep our community’s recovery moving forward.”
Our team came together to raise $350 of their own funds to put toward a community cause. When discovering the efforts of its group of specialists, leadership at OTM put forth an additional $650 to make a collective contribution of $1,000 on behalf of the company. Funds went to The Northern Colorado COVID-19 Response Fund launched by The Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and United Way of Larimer County to aid in relief among northern Colorado nonprofit agencies. The collaborative funding and leadership will support vital organizations while providing bandwidth and resources to nonprofit partners addressing today’s greatest need.
Additionally, we delivered 250 hand sanitizers to Fort Collins Rescue Mission. Serving the most vulnerable in the Front Range community since 2012, Fort Collins Rescue Mission helps restore the lives of people experiencing homelessness and addiction through emergency services like meals and shelter, and long-term, life-changing programs. “We are incredibly thankful for the year-round support and encouragement our Fort Collins community provides to help those in need and to ensure our team feels safe and secure, especially during such a time of added uncertainty,” said Seth Forwood, Senior Director at Fort Collins Rescue Mission.
“It’s unbelievably humbling to witness our team’s unwavering commitment to our community and clients during this time,” said Kailburn. “From leading local donation initiatives such as these, to the ongoing outpour of expertise to support our clients, we truly couldn’t be more proud of our OTM family for their continued dedication and efforts.”
We hope to inspire others to get involved with community causes in any way they can. To learn more and contribute to The Northern Colorado COVID-19 Response Fund, visit uwaylc.org/Post/COVID-19.
