A lot of you know my Dad is the Fire Chief of the Livermore Fire Department here in Colorado. Livermore, Glacier View, and Red Feathers fire departments were hit pretty badly with the High Park Fire, not only in fire loss and damage, but in use of their departments, and equipment.
These are all Volunteer Fire Departments, and receive very limited funding. Not only were 240 homes lost, but the wear and tear on these departments were quite significant.
My Dad has been blessed by Firehouse Quilts as they have provided some Ambulance quilts, as well as Marilyn , who will be sending some quilts - as these have REALLY provided comfort to some wired up and scared kids.My mom got to give a little kiddo a quilt, and she said it was so cool. The little kiddo's eye lit up, and he refused to let go of the quilt. he really needed that comfort!
If you live in Colorado or Wyoming, the three fire departments are hosting a fundraiser and benefit to raise some funds to keep the departments going, and make repairs to the equipment.
There will be food, fun, a silent auction, and Music. And of course I will be there for a little while.
If you are interested in this - email me, we can meet up!!
