DENVER RUBICON TEAM MEMBERS: Volunteers Sent to Kentucky to Help Following Deadly Storms


DENVER (KDVR) – The devastation that followed the deadly Kentucky tornadoes has not gone unnoticed by aid groups across the country, even in Colorado.

One of those groups, Team Rubicon, expects to send volunteers from here in Denver to Ground Zero.

They call themselves “gray shirts” and there are gray shirts all over the country, including some in Denver, preparing to head to Kentucky in the next few days.

A bunch of gray Team Rubicon shirts are already in Kentucky.

“This will add to a larger mission,” said Jeff Byard.

Byard is the group’s vice president of operations.

“We have a large contingent that is extremely active in the Denver area,” said Byard.

When they need to send volunteers anywhere, Byard said, Colorado residents are among the first to answer the call.

“We’re sure we’ll have a lot of our Denver squad engaged in the fight in Kentucky,” Byard said. “It supports these local efforts. ”

Local efforts include clearing rubble to make way for supplies.

“We’re going to start working with individual owners, start helping where we can; move the debris, ”Byard said.

There are several ways you can help them function.

“Two of the most valuable resources are time and money and when our people donate both, or one or the other, it is greatly appreciated,” said Byard.

The American Red Cross told FOX31 it would have a better idea of ​​what will be mobilized to help Kentucky in the coming days.

If you would like to volunteer or donate, you can do so on their site.
