Continued Support for US Wildfire Survivors

By Sarah Maraschky | Communications Associate

It has been nearly one year since the most destructive fire in Colorado’s state history forced more than 35,000 residents of the Boulder area to evacuate their homes. The fire overtook more than 6,000 acres, damaging or destroying nearly 2,000 structures, including homes and businesses. Two people were killed in the disaster. Although many of the fire’s survivors are underinsured, they are still working hard to rebuild their homes and lives one year later. 

Winter is traditionally a time of lower fire danger in the United States, but Boulder’s Marshall Fire is a reminder that disasters like it can strike at any time. High winds and unseasonably warm, dry conditions allowed the fire to spread quickly, and unfortunately, climate change only continues to make this problem worse.

Peace Winds is continuing to collect donations to ensure that we are well-prepared to aid in disaster relief if and when another situation like the Marshall Fire strikes communities in the western United States again. In the immediate aftermath of these tragedies, support includes providing basic necessities like food, water, clothing, bedding, and temporary shelter as well as medical and mental health services. Peace Winds aims to be well-prepared to provide this kind of aid as soon as it is needed. We appreciate your continued support.
