German-based Kärcher has donated 250 pressure washers and $10,000 in cash to the cleanup effort in Colorado, according to a press release.
“There are three critical areas in the flood recovery process: housing, transportation and cleanup. This gift greatly impacts the fourth area and often times the most time consuming piece - the clean up,” says Erin Mounsey, executive director of the Northern Colorado Chapter of the Red Cross.
Kärcher joined forces with several volunteer organizations that helped to clean up hundreds of properties. Teams of four were trained how to use the pressure washers and then they were sent to homes that were in most need of flood clean up. The volunteers then left the pressure washer in each family’s home as a gift from Kärcher.
