A fire relief fund has been set up through Foothills United Way for the collection of financial donations to help residents impacted by the Cold Springs Fire near Nederland. Those seeking to make online contributions can visit www.ColdSpringsFireFund.org. The funds will be distributed by the Boulder County Department of Housing and Human Services through case managers working with fire-impacted residents to determine need.
Members of the community should not attempt to make in-kind donations or drop off items at any location. Generosity is much appreciated, but please donate through the fire fund or plan to volunteer in the coming days and weeks once we enter the recovery phase.
