DENVER (KDVR) – FOX31 and Channel 2 are working with local organizations and members of the community to assist families displaced by the most destructive wildfire in Colorado͛’s history: the Marshall Fire.

There are many ways to help. To focus efforts, on January 5 under the banner of “Boulder County Wildfire: Crisis Relief͛”, both stations also held an all-day outreach to the community to raise funds to help nearly 1,000 families whose homes were destroyed by the fire.

How to get help if you were impacted by the fire:
➡️ Find available resources

“This is the day for people to help fellow Coloradans,” said FOX31 and Channel 2 Vice President and General Manager, Byron Grandy. “For all of us, this was a heartbreaking event. With this determined effort we can make a difference and truly help all of those in need.” As part of the day of fundraising, the Nexstar Charitable Foundation, from FOX31 and Channel 2’s parent company, made a $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross.


Donate money

Donate goods or services

A Marshall Fire Donations and Resource Center has been set up by Boulder County. A variety of items are needed. A full list, along with hours and drop-off location, can be found on the Boulder OEM website.

Follow the YMCA of Northern Colorado for updates on what supplies are needed at their shelter for evacuated animals. Needs may include blankets, pillows and dog and cat food.

Food, drink and hygiene products can be donated to the North Denver Food pantry at 6900 W. 1117th Ave. and financial donations can be made at northdenvercares.org.

Offer shelter

Boulder OEM asks anyone who is able to offer shelter to people displaced to sign up to be a vetted host at Airbnb.com. The Airbnb Open Homes Program will alert you if your shelter is needed.
