The Wyoming Town of Glendo is seeking help to offset the costs associated with hosting thousands of eclipse viewers earlier this month.
Glendo is a small town in Eastern Wyoming with a population just over 200. During the eclipse on August 21st, the town grew to about 100,000 from eclipse viewers.
TheDenverChannel.com reports the town spent approximately $40,000 for porta-potties, trash containers, and other sanitation expenses.
With a small tax base, the town spent a considerable amount of its funds to provide necessary services during the event.
The town is accepting donations in checks, cash donations, and via a GoFundMe account. The GoFundMe account can be found atÂ https://www.gofundme.com/costs-of-the-2017-solar-eclipse
