Finally there is a way you can help those affected by the High Park Fire west of Fort Collins. The High Park Fire Donations Collection Center has opened in the Foothills Fashion Mall in the space that used to be  Mervyn’s.  Larimer County partnered with Adventist Community Services Disaster Response to open the  Collection Center, which is open 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

If you you would like to help, you can drop off items.  If you have been affected by the fire and need help, you can pick up items. K99 staff and our sister stations will be at the Distribution Center on Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. for a live broadcast and to do a little volunteering too!

Items needed include:

  • diapers
  • wipes
  • personal hygiene items
  • new packaged underwear
  • non-perishable foods
  • animal foods
  • new bedding
  • laundry and cleaning supplies
  • large trash cans and bags
  • work gloves
  • new shovels and rakes
  • N-95 masks,
  • laundry baskets
  • first aid kits
  • lip balm
  • sun screen
  • refillable water bottle
  • backpacks
  • cash donations

Please NO used clothing or bottled water.

Those wanting to volunteer should NOT go to the Donations Collection Center. For information on volunteering,  go to: HelpColoradoNow.org
