Broomfield, CO (June 2, 2020) – Many families, organizations and businesses throughout the Denver metro area have been harshly impacted by shockwaves of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Northwest Parkway LLC today announced it is making a $100,000 donation to three Broomfield and Lafayette organizations assisting those in need.
Pedro Costa, Northwest Parkway CEO said, “As an organization financially affected by, but fortunate enough to be weathering, these challenging times, we take to heart the importance of supporting organizations that are directly fighting this fight and helping those who have been the most impacted.”
The Northwest Parkway selected the following organizations based upon their positive local and regional impacts, the breadth and inclusive nature of their constituency, and their effectiveness in providing assistance to those in need:
The Broomfield Community Foundation - $70,000
The Broomfield Community Foundation leverages their knowledge of community, philanthropy, asset management and grant making to amplify the generosity of others and create a stronger Broomfield for all.
Timothy J. Schafer, president of the Broomfield Community Foundation Board of Directors said, “We are grateful to the Northwest Parkway for giving support to the Broomfield Community Foundation through their generous donation. We are proud to be part of the network serving our most vulnerable residents by rapidly and effectively funneling resources through organizations that are already compassionately providing front line services.”
The North Metro Fire Rescue District - $20,000
The North Metro Fire Rescue District is an all-hazards response team trained to handle a diverse range of emergencies. The District proactively works with residents and businesses to build a safer community through education, outreach, and prevention.
David Ramos, Fire Chief with North Metro Fire Rescue District, said, “This donation from the Northwest Parkway comes at an especially critical time and helps North Metro Fire Rescue District continue to provide the excellent emergency services that our citizens expect and deserve.”
One Lafayette - $10,000
One Lafayette helps the City of Lafayette efficiently and effectively utilize existing organizations that provide community-need assistance. This allows all of the dollars donated go directly to organizations that service the community, in essence building a community with heart.
Lafayette Mayor Jamie Harkins said, “We thank the Northwest Parkway for their donation, which we will forward to our organizations that help provide community resources to those most in need. The impacts of the pandemic create an even greater hardship to our most vulnerable populations.”
Northwest Parkway’s goal with these contributions is to help mitigate the challenges local communities will face as they prepare to bounce back and begin moving toward a healthier future.
The Northwest Parkway Toll Road is a 100% privately funded nine-mile-long highway connecting E-470 (at I-25 in north metro Denver) with U.S. 36 in Broomfield, Colorado. There were no tax dollars used to build, finance, operate or maintain the parkway.
