Estes Valley Disaster Relief is a group of concerned citizens who came together in response to the Woodland Heights Fire in June, 2012. Our goal was to spearhead and unite all the fundraising efforts for the victims of that fire.
In our planning, we realized that many of the resources available to disaster victims were not available to Estes Park residents unless they were willing to drive an hour or more to reach them. In addition, we were concerned about keeping donations within our community. We also recognized that there could be other disasters in Estes Park’s future, and we wanted to have a system in place for dealing with these locally.
Thus, Estes Valley Disaster Relief was born.
One of our functions is to raise money for affected families, and from time to time we hold fundraising events.
Through a partnership with Crossroads Ministry, we are able to accept tax-deductible monetary donations. The Estes Valley Disaster Relief board reviews applications for assistance and disburses the funds.
This is truly a collaborative, community effort–one that makes Estes Park strong. Thank you for your support!
