Boulder County and its surrounding area including Lyons, Coal Creek, Boulder have been in a state of emergency since a devastating flood ravaged the area late last week.
People have died, thousands of homes have been destroyed, and countless individuals remain unaccounted for. Relief efforts are underway thanks to the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and volunteers--but the area is still in dire need of support as it tries to recover and rebuild.
Every cent matters, and through the strength of our tight knit community, we can and we will make a difference by spreading this fund to the masses raising at least $100,000 for the Boulder Flood victims and communities. Even if you can't donate, PLEASE share this link with your friends and help get the word out!
This is an official relief fund and all proceeds will go DIRECTLY to the communities torn apart by the flood.
