Although FEMA and insurance companies have been slow to respond to the victims of the tornado that struck Windsor, Colorado, the churches have been quick to see needs and meet them. The Greeley Tribune reports:
Sarah Delaney with the Episcopal Response Effort from throughout Colorado is spending a week in Windsor. About noon Wednesday, she gets out of a van to give several volunteers sandwiches.
The group was supposed to go to Juárez, Mexico, like it does every year, but it's dangerous in Juárez this year, plus there are a lot of people in their own backyard who need the help.
"Even though this is the second phase, there's still so, so, so much to do," Delaney said. The group -- with volunteers from Boulder, Longmont, Loveland and Fort Collins -- is helping the uninsured. "We're cleaning. We're doing whatever we can."
Delaney is off. There is more to do. Her van is running and her friend is in the car peeking back through the rear as if to say, "Let's go."
A gray Wednesday in Windsor -- cloudy and windy -- changed suddenly around the noon hour, nearly three weeks after many people's lives changed forever.
"The sun is coming out," she says.
