Colorado Strong

Colorado, flood, Steve Beard, Mississippi, Hurricane Katrina
As Colorado’s devastating flood recedes, the extent of the damage in many areas is heartbreakingly apparent.  Through this tragedy we witness amazing stories of cooperation, heroism and perseverance. Friends and total strangers join hands to help. A Wesco Fabrics’ sales person, Steve Beard, energized his church in Jackson, Mississippi, to make donations.  People from gulf areas hit by Hurricane Katrina are coming to Colorado to help as they remember many from our state who once helped them in their time of need. It will take time to cleanup and rebuild, but we are definitely “Colorado Strong!”
