Many families, organizations and businesses in the area have been harshly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the Northwest Parkway (NWP) announced on June 2 that it would make a $20,000 donation to North Metro Fire Rescue District to assist those in need. The fire district will use the funding to purchase personal protective equipment, decontamination supplies and to pay overtime for additional EMS personnel during the pandemic.
“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,” said David Ramos, fire chief for North Metro Fire.
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.”
Northwest Parkway’s goal with the 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.
