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.
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
