As part of our fire recovery efforts, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions below. We'll update this list as recovery efforts continue.
Can you please clarify the varying Fire Recovery Funds for our community?
What is the best way to support wildfire efforts at this time?
At this time, the best way for you to support the community through this response and recovery is through financial contributions to our Community Emergency & Response Fund. (This fund will support recovery efforts from the 2020 Colorado Wildfires as well as long-term recovery efforts from the COVID-19 pandemic.) The full extent of needs won’t be evident for some time, and recovery is a months-long, if not years-long process.
Thank you to our generous community for supporting fire survivors during the Larimer County wildfires in 2020.
Can I mail a check instead of making a donation online?
Absolutely! Be sure to include "fire recovery efforts" on the memo line of your check. You can mail a check to:
United Way of Larimer County
525 West Oak Street, Suite 101
Fort Collins, CO 80521
Where can I donate physical items? (clothes, food, water, toys for displaced children, etc.)
We are not accepting physical donations at this time. If the fire survivors need more items, we will update this page.
If you want to donate non-perishable food items, can you also donate to the Food Bank of Larimer County.
How can I volunteer to support the wildfire response and recovery?
We will be posting all volunteer opportunities on NoCoVolunteers.org when they become available. We anticipate volunteer needs to arise in the near future to support donation management, debris clean-up, and other activities. To be notified of future needs, please create a user account on NoCoVolunteers.org.
My family has been evacuated, where do I go, and how can I get access to clothing and other supplies?
Call 211 Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM - rental and utility assistance, health care, child care, clothing, and more.
