Here's how you can help the families that were affected by the loss of their loved ones in the Grand Mesa mudslide.

One of the reasons I LOVE the Grand Valley is because when a tragedy happens we band together to help one another!

We received a request to run a public service announcement yesterday saying,

Unexpected events, such as the Collbran Mudslide,  can create financial  emergencies and hardships for any family. Funds have been set up for both the Nichols and Hawkins families who have been so tragically affected by catastrophe,  and donations are being accepted at any area Grand Valley Bank.  Support our friends and neighbors in their time of need.    Stop by any Grand Valley Bank and make a donation today….or call Grand Valley Bank of Collbran 487-0202 for details.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the friends and families of those lost.

There are two accounts set up and anyone interested in donating should make their check out to either the Nichols Family or the Hawkins Family.
