BOULDER, Colo. (10/7/10)--The Elevations Foundation has distributed $81,000 from its Fourmile Fire Relief Fund. The fund was established Sept. 8 and will help victims and local firefighting agencies. A wildfire burning early in September in the steep mountainsides and canyons near Boulder, Colo., became the most destructive fire in the state’s history (Associated Press Sept. 8). Many homes were destroyed by the 6,200 acre fire, and at least 3,500 people were evacuated. Elevations, which is the charitable arm of Boulder-based Elevations CU, is working with Boulder County Community Services, the Foothills United Way and the Community Foundation Serving Boulder County to distribute the funds. “These organizations have worked tirelessly to see that victims are identified and needs are being met,” said Dennis Paul, Elevations assistant vice president for business and community development. The foundation’s fund provides a source of cash resources, he said. Elevations also established a fire relief fund for the Reservoir Road fire west of Loveland, Colo. Elevations is working with the United Way of Larimer County to distribute funds for families affected in the Loveland area.
