Marshall Fire recovery: how you can help
January 5, 2022
Over the years, Boulder County residents have been quick to come to the aid of neighbors during times of disaster, and the aftermath of the Dec. 30 Marshall Fire is no exception. As of Jan. 5, more than $25 million has been raised to assist survivors of the wildfires that destroyed nearly 1,000 homes and businesses in Louisville and Superior through the Community Foundation Boulder County's Wildfire Fund, Colorado Gives, and individual drives on GoFundMe. In addition, several other organizations are collecting donations of non-perishable food and essential personal care items for those who left everything behind.
Below is a partial list of organizations accepting cash or other* donations for Marshall Fire victims. For a more comprehensive list, visit Marshall Fire Resource Directory or Boulder Beat, which have collected several resources both for fire survivors and those offering assistance.
*Be sure to follow guidelines when making non-monetary donations, since many organizations have limited storage space and resources to sort through donated items.
