Steamboat Community Comes Together to Help Marshall Fire Victims

We watched in horror as friends, families and communities were destroyed by the flames of the Marshall Fire, just three hours from our HQ in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We haven't quite known how best to give and help, other than through phone calls, messages and warm thoughts. Until now. 

 

Town Hall Around Town Cold Weather Jackets for victims of the Marshall Fire
Dusky Grouse Coffee in Steamboat has rallied the Steamboat Little Givers to bring the love! This group of passionate community-loving kids are leading the charge to help build Steamboat Kid Comfort Packs filled with books, warm gear, snacks, small toys and Town Hall Around Town Cold Weather Jackets, so kiddos can get back outside in the fresh air and stay warm. Our pals at Off the Beaten Path are in on the fun too. And Big Agnes in Steamboat is donating proceeds to the Boulder County Wildfire Fund. The mountain community love is strong!

Packs are being delivered to our friends at the Boulder Office of Emergency Management next week. They will ensure that the Steamboat Little Givers' packages get into the right hands of kiddos and families who lost everything. 

If you or your little giver wants to assist, drop your items off at Dusky Grouse by this Sunday, January 23.

And if you are as baffled by a fire in snowy December as many are, check out this article for more on how Climate Change led to this destructive situation.

"But winds alone didn’t account for the destruction. In the months leading up to this wildfire, climate conditions set the stage for a disaster. The spring of 2021 brought unusually wet conditions, encouraging vigorous plant growth. Starting in June, though, precipitation levels fell below average, and remained well below average for the rest of the year." - Climate.gov
