On Thursday, December 30, 2021, near-hurricane-force winds spread an unprecedented and massive fire that roared through the towns of Superior and Louisville and parts of unincorporated Boulder County. More than 1,000 structures were lost and many others were damaged. Numerous organizations mobilized, including Catholic Charities and the local parishes in the affected communities. Within days, we joined federal, state and local organizations at the Disaster Assistance Center to donate gift cards, provide spiritual care and support our neighbors who have lost so much.
The needs from this event will be ongoing for many years. It will take months for folks to get settled and years to rebuild. That's why monetary donations are still being collected and are so valuable to everyone impacted by the fires and high winds. Click here to make a donation.
So many generous people donated new clothing, household items, equipment and personal hygiene items in the days following the tragedy. Most of those donations have been distributed or moved to one facility for ease of use by the Marshall Fire and high wind survivors. Details about the location, how to get items, how to donate and what is being accepted are outlined here.
