Niwot High School Shelters Evacuees
By Mary Wolbach Lopert and Bruce Warren
On Friday, Sept. 13, Jamestown evacuees found a safe place at Niwot High School and a community that was willing to act by donating food, clothing and pet supplies.
According to volunteer Sandra Weckerly, “Hundreds and hundreds of towels, blankets and pieces of clothing have been donated. Tons of food from Oskar Blues, Blackjack Pizza and the school district has also arrived.” There were also large donations of pet food, personal care items, kitty litter and toys.
“It’s been a slow process of getting people out [of the flooded areas],” Weckerly said. “They flew out people [from Jamestown] who had the highest need … and who have lost their homes. They check in at the school, can be fed and take a shower. At this time we have between 60 to 75 people staying here.”
Luckily, Weckerly added, “Many of the evacuees have had friends and family members here who have picked them up.
