Please consider a donation to help our Boulder community feel supported and get back on their feet due to the fires in our area. While it is obvious it will take a while, feeling like the community cares will only help the healing process. We all know someone who has lost a home/homes or a pet and I am sure you are doing what you can for them. These links are additional resources for the victims.
We wanted to share the links in one place to make it easy to see where donations are needed for our community. The first links are for animal specific donations and the second for people. Please share and pass along to increase donations in whatever way anyone can. We are fortunate to live in such a generous community and we know that if god forbid any of us are ever in this situation, we would want and need the support.
