Colorado’s electric cooperatives are raising money for water filters for Guatemalan families. When the Colorado-Oklahoma international team heads to Sillab, Guatemala, in August to wire the village of Sillab for electricity, CREA is hoping to send enough money with the team to purchase water filters for each of the 60 households in that mountain village.
CREA’s nonprofit Colorado Electric Educational Institute is accepting donations for “Eco Filtros” manufactured in Guatemala. These 5-gallon filters last two years.
The filters are $35 each plus $9 shipping. To donate any amount, visit crea.coop/community-outreach/current-causes or mail a check made out to CEEI (with Clean Water Fund on the memo line) to CREA, 5400 Washington St., Denver, CO 80216.
