OCR Physicians Donate $25,000 for Flood Relief and Recovery
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies has made a donation of $25,000 to help relief and recovery efforts for area residents affected by the Big Thompson and Poudre River floods.
The donation was made to the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado to support its initiatives on behalf of residents who live in the flood-stricken areas. OCR‰ЫЄs physician partners approved the gift at a recent board meeting.
‰ЫПWe want to help, and we know the Community Foundation and the Bohemian Foundation are working diligently to raise money to help people recover,‰Ыќ said Dr. Mark Durbin, who is OCR‰ЫЄs board president. ‰ЫПThe losses are just devastating.‰Ыќ
The donation will be divided equally among the three flood-relief funds at the Community Foundation ‰ЫТ the Estes Park-Drake area, Loveland, and Poudre Canyon.
OCR has supported disaster relief efforts before, including a $10,000 donation in 2008 for victims of the Windsor tornado, and $10,000 in 2012 for those affected by the High Park Fire.
The physicians and employees also donated following the earthquake in Haiti in 2010 and the deadly tornadoes that struck the U.S. South and Midwest in 2011.
