Flood Cleanup

Now is the time to take direct action and help out our neighbors.

In the last couple weeks we've seen unprecedented flooding in Colorado, displacing thousands of people and damaging over 20,000 homes. Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this tragedy. Sierra Club members and friends also want to lend our hands and our backs to go out and help out our affected communities.

We're partnering with our environmental allies and the cities of Boulder and Longmont, Habitat for Humanity, Mudslingers, Boulder Flood Relief, Samaritan's Purse and Rocky Mountain Christian Church to provide several opportunities for you to help clean up homes and open space devastated by flooding.  

Then on Sunday evening, to show our appreciation for your help, we're coming together with Rock the Earth and Alliance for Sustainable Colorado to host a community gathering "Celebrating Community Resilience"

Sign up to volunteer October 5 and 6 to come out and support flood recovery efforts. RSVP now!
