Superior Colorado Fire Victims Assistance

I’ve noticed that since the devastating Boulder four mile canyon fire, a lot of attention has been given (rightfully so) to the tragedy of so many people who lost their homes and more to the fire that wiped out many parts of the suburban foothills near Boulder.
In the wake of this, it seems like several families have been forgotten.
Just prior to the Boulder fire, a building burned in the Summit development in the southern Rock Creek area of Superior.
From some of the information I’ve received, I heard that several of these families lost everything, except their lives, and to rub salt into the wounds… they didn’t have insurance.

Kirsten Beemer in Superior, is coordinating efforts among several groups and citizens to bring assistance to these families. If you think you’d like to help, or would just like more information, I’ve included a quote from an email from Kirsten.

Here’s the info from Kirsten’s email:

Hello and thank you so much for offering to help out the Superior Fire Victims!!!!!

It has been a long haul to find out what exactly the families need and/or want help with.  We do have a few ways you can help out right now if you would like.

1-     CASH/CHECK donations are always appreciated.  You can make out checks to:

The Summit at Rock Creek- 700 N. Colorado Blvd. #419 Denver Co 80206

Cool River Church- 300 Center Dr. G-171 Superior, Co 80027

Rock Creek Church- 726 Front St., Ste. A Louisville, Co 80027

100% of the money will go to the fire victims.  Please write “local fund” in the memo line or attach a sticky note on the money saying “for fire victims”.

2-     Two CARE CALENDARS are set up.  This is a website where you can sign up to make meals for the families.  It says what their diet restrictions are if they have any and the address of where to drop off the food.  Much help is needed with this and appreciated!!!!  I believe there are coolers outside both of the families houses for you to drop off the meals to.  Let me know if you would like to make some meals and I will give you the info to do so.

3-     Dennis and Andrea Golod have registered at Target for items that they would like, to replace what they have lost in their fire.  Feel free to buy anything or if you see something on the list that you already have, feel free to pass that on to them as well.  If you would like to give me the items, I can give them to the Golod’s for you.  They have a 16 month old son as well.  To find the registry- go to Target.com or a Target Kiosk, enter Dennis Golod (name) and Superior, Co (city, state).  It is under a general gift list, not a wedding or baby list.  Have fun!

4-  And lastly if you have access to DISCOUNTS on furniture, paint supplies, childcare, counseling services, food, etc. please notify me.

Thank you so much for your willingness to help out and thank you to those who have already helped out in some way.

It takes a community!

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have.
