As of January 1st, it’s been estimated that around 1,080 structures (including houses, a hotel, and shopping center) have been burned down from the wildfires that spread across Boulder county starting December 30th. In less than 12 hours, the Marshall Fires surpassed the Black Forest Fire as the state’s most devastating (in terms of structures lost).
To show our support, we wanted to put together a list of resources that detail how you can help, where you can donate, etc.
A few places where you can donate:
- People who would like to donate and show support can sign up at ColoradoResponds.org, where monetary donations are being taken at this time to help disaster agencies fund what they need.
- Monetary destinations can also be made at the Boulder Office of Emergency Management.
- JEWISHcolorado has a Boulder Fire Relief Fund, a mailbox that essentially reaches those who are most impacted.
- You can donate through Denver7 under their wildlife relief fund.
- The Community Foundation of Boulder County is also collecting donations that will go towards wildfire relief.
In collaboration with AirBnB, you can volunteer to be a vetted host to help displaced residents by signing up at the website.
