Two weeks ago we watched as the hometown of our company, Boulder Colorado, was inundated with flood waters. Since then we worked with residents, both renters and property owners, who needed to find housing, and scheduling service calls arranging for contractors to fix rental properties under our management that were damaged. We personally met with so many people affected by the floods in Boulder County alone.
While we were helping our 8z Rentals clients, both residents and property owners, we saw the destruction first hand and heard many personal stories. So we had the idea to switch up the October Facebook contest to give those most affected by the floods the chance to win the gift card drawing.
Did you take photos of flood damage on your property – to send to your insurance agent or for friends out of the area? Please submit your original photography along with your Colorado flood story for the caption. Then vote for the photos submitted to help us find the 1st place and 2nd place photo, to award the $100 Target gift card and $75 Target gift card winners.
While it certainly won’t replace everything that was lost for the two winners, we hope it will help turning their house back into their home.
If you would like to do more to help those who are still cleaning up from this natural disaster, we recommend for you to go to BoulderFloodRelief.org. Boulder stands strong!
