Donations to assist uninsured flood victims
BURLINGTON, WA — To support the flood relief efforts in Boulder, Colorado, Restoration Sciences Academy (RSA) will donate 5 percent of fees from hands-on restorative drying courses held during October in Burlington, Washington, and Nashville, Tennessee, according to a press release.
In addition, RSA and Dri-Eaz Products have donated equipment valued at over $20,000 to be used by Boulder Flood Relief to assist uninsured homeowners in the stricken region, the release stated.
According to the release, flooding is rare in the area, and many property owners did not carry flood insurance.
"The worst hit in this crisis are those who do not have adequate insurance coverage. We hope RSA's cash donations and the equipment will make it easier to get everyone back into their homes," said Brandon Burton, technical director of Legend Brands.
"The property damage is horrendous. The restoration and cleaning industry has stepped up. We responded promptly. You can’t drive down a street in the impacted area without seeing a restoration or cleaning company vehicle," said Raj Manickam, chief executive officer (CEO) of SteamMaster.
Individuals wishing to contribute directly to the flood relief effort are urged to contact Boulder Flood Relief at (720) 943-4482, or e-mail [email protected], the release noted.
