Thank you for your support of the Boulder County community during this difficult crisis. As our region begins the recovery process, listed below are resources for residents interested in donating or providing assistance. These may be updated periodically. Please continue following the Boulder Office of Emergency Management (OEM) for the most current information and resources at https://www.boulderoem.com/emergency-status/. The OEM Call Center is accepting non-emergency calls and questions regarding the fire: 303-413-7730. 

Message from Boulder OEM 1/1/22 at 4:00pm 

We have been overwhelmed by the community’s generosity. Please DO NOT bring donations to any of the evacuation centers or Sister Carmen. If you would like to help victims impacted by the fire, please consider a financial donation through the Community Foundation serving Boulder County, Red Cross, or Sister Carmen, or sign up to volunteer. There will be many opportunities to volunteer in the days ahead as we continue to recover from this catastrophic event. If you have materials, food, water and services to donate, you can register online through a form on Boulder OEM’s website. Also, if you have housing you want to offer to victims, please register your home through AirBnB's Open Homes Program. 

DONATE
