Together, we’re building back better.
This past week a dedicated collection of small business in Golden, Colorado donated thousands from proceeds of small shop, cafe and service percentages along the Avenue.
It was an organic movement to support the families effected by the Superior-Louisville Fire on December 30, 2021.
These Golden funds will be added to the millions of dollars donated from all over the world to The Boulder County Wild Fire Fund.
The Community Foundation of Boulder County and its mission to help ease the pain, sorrow and heartache from this devastating loss got an extra boost too from The President of the United States.
But there’s more work to be done.
The foundation has now set up direct financial assistance of up to 500-thousand dollars per evacuee.
The Boulder County Disaster Assistance Center is located at 1755 S. Public Road in Lafayette.
Its mission is to help people who lost homes in or were displaced by the fire with a range of services including property loss and filing claims for assistance, financial and food assistance, mental health supports, transportation, and more.
The center includes specialists from Boulder County Housing and Human Services, Public Health, and Community Services, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Mental Health Partners, many other area government and nonprofit organizations, and insurers.
