Flooding - How you can Help Lyons Residents

I was finally able to help get my family out of Lyons yesterday. People are going to need your help. If you know Lyons people here's what they will need
Places to sleep
Rides
Comfy things for their children
Games , toys, books
Blankets
Pillows
Cookware
Plates
Utensils
Lamps
Furniture
Basically they will have to furnish an offsite residence in a very short time frame

If you don't know someone in Lyons but want to help. Take everything you want to donate to life bridge church in north Longmont. That's also the place to volunteer your time.

Trust me, everything you do and bring will help somebody. People have their lives but may have lost everything else or most. They are running on fumes and need everyone that's has time and energy to just help them.

Another thing to know is that the people getting out have not slept in days. They have had to make life and death decisions continuously for days based on fragmented and contradicting information. They are at their wits end and need something solid to hold on to.

Lyons will be back better than ever. I know this because of what I witnessed yesterday and how this community came together to keep each other safe.

Booth - glad to know you and the family are out and safe. Words and pictures can't even begin to reveal the full magnitude of what's going on along the Front Range and I know that every buzzard is thinking of you and the rest of the Lyons community.

"Lyons will be back and better than ever" - damn straight it will be. No community full of amazing and positive people will let this hold them back, and Lyons is just such a community. Much love to all of you.

I unstuck this, as it effectively makes it blind to anyone on a mobile device, or at least to an I phone

Donations

Lifebridge is not accepting any more donations at this time. They have more stuff than they can handle. They are asking for you to hang on to anything you would like to donate until they are ready for it later. The only thing they mentioned in church this morning is prayers. Thank you.
