Our hearts are broken with the knowledge that hundreds of homes and businesses were lost due to the Marshall Fire that devastated our communities on December 30th. At the same time, we feel tremendous gratitude for the selfless actions of our first responders who worked diligently to save the lives of our neighbors in Superior and Louisville. As responders continue to assess the extent of damage, I’m writing to give you a brief update on Community Food Share.
Community Food Share’s warehouse and offices are located in the Colorado Technology Center in Louisville. Yesterday afternoon, our staff members, participants, and volunteers swiftly and safely evacuated. This morning, we received word that the fire did not reach our building; however, the high winds damaged our roof, and we have a crew onsite assessing next steps for repair.
We are currently working with the disaster response teams that are on the ground, including the Red Cross, Feeding America, evacuation centers, and local emergency management teams. We are poised to help if and when they need our support.
We are here to meet the needs of displaced neighbors, our network of hunger-relief partners, and the community members we serve every day. If you are in need of food assistance, you can find information on our programs and those of our partners on this webpage.
In the coming days, we will share information about expanded services along with our specific requests for support, after officials have gauged the full impact of this tragedy.
Thank you for your commitment to supporting your neighbors — this community is more resilient and more adaptive because of you. Together, we will rebuild.
