Your Friends at the Christy Sports LLC Family of Brands
Christy Sports has contributed over $51,000 to the Colorado COVID Relief Fund.
The Colorado COVID Relief Fund is hosted by the State of Colorado and Mile High United Way. The fund will be overseen by a committee of community leaders from across Colorado and will be providing aid to support Colorado communities and organizations affected by the recent outbreak of COVID-19. Funds will provide flexible resources to organizations in our state working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by the outbreak.
"We are grateful for the support that we have received from private sector partners like Christy Sports. Thanks to its generosity we will be able to support Coloradans across our state that are being affected by this deadly virus," stated Colorado Governor Jared Polis.
Christy Sports and Leisure Living contributed $42,000 to the United Way of Salt Lake.
The Utah COVID-19 Community Response Fund supports organizations statewide that are working with individuals and families most impacted by the economic consequences of Coronavirus. Funds are distributed to organizations through a grant application process based on the highest needs in our communities.
"As we work to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the most vulnerable in our community, we are deeply grateful for Christy Sports and others that have joined in this effort," said Bill Crim, President and CEO of United Way of Salt Lake. With their support, we can continue to build a future of opportunity for every Utahn."
Sturtevant's and Ski Mart contributed $42,000 to the United Way of King County.
Because of COVID-19, the needs of the most vulnerable people in Seattle and King County are increasing, and that group of people is growing—there are people who need help today that have never needed help before.
With schools closed and children at home, families are having to provide unplanned-for meals. Further, many people who were already struggling have had their hours cut or lost their jobs, meaning even less money is available for food. Your donation will help families stay fed with widespread access to grab-and-go meals for kids, county-wide availability of family food relief programs--and continuing support of a large network of food banks.
"We are grateful for this generous gift to the Community Relief Fund from Sturtevant's," said Gordon McHenry, Jr., president and CEO of United Way of King County. "The nutritional and housing needs of the community continue to grow, as we grapple with the economic impact of the pandemic. We are proud to partner with Sturtevant's and look forward to continued cooperation in the future."
Cottam's and Bootdoctors contributed $30,000 to the Taos Community Foundation.
The Fund for Taos is designed to respond quickly when kids might go hungry, when senior services might fray, when our community's most vulnerable need healthcare. We can't anticipate exactly what is on the other side of this, but we are going to prepare and then figure it out together.
Lisa O'Brien, Foundation Director of Taos Community Foundation stated, "We are thrilled to receive this generous gift from Christy's Sports on behalf of Cottam's and Bootdoctors to assist with Covid-19 recovery efforts in our community. As a new partner in community, they have fully engaged in the collective spirit of charitable giving, and the community of Taos is grateful".
Christy Sports Family of Brands collected and donated over 700 pairs of goggle.
Goggles for Docs is an effort to get used or new goggles into the hands of healthcare workers who currently have no eye protection as they treat COVID-19 patients.
Christy Sports donated over 60 new pairs of Smith Goggles directly to the staff at Rose Medical Center in Denver, CO.
Well known as a Denver institution and a 9th Avenue landmark for more than 60 years, Rose Medical Center has earned a reputation as Denver's "Baby Hospital" while becoming a leader in comprehensive women's services, internal medicine, endoscopy, heart and vascular care, orthopedics and total joint replacement, bariatric surgery, sports medicine and aesthetic surgery. With origins in Jewish teachings, traditions and community, Rose's founders built the hospital to "serve the need of every creed."
