Want To Help Victims Of Park Theatre Mall Fire? Join The Bucket Brigade!
Since last Monday’s fire, an outpouring of concern for fire victims as well as appreciation for Estes Park’s Volunteer Firefighters and Police Department has been growing and local organizations are joining forces to facilitate offers of assistance.
The Local Marketing District, Convention & Visitors Bureau and Estes Valley Partners for Commerce are working together to assist the community. EVPC established a special bank account with Bank of Colorado for donations. Checks to help victims of the fire can be made payable to “The Bucket Brigade” and checks to assist Firefighters and Police can be made payable to ‘Fire Fighters & Police Fund.” Checks can be dropped off at Bank of Colorado or the Estes Park Visitors Center.
EVPC also established a web blog, designed to be a source for ideas and information. Check it out and sign up to help.
In addition, two special events have been planned. To show appreciation to the local business community, the community is being asked to purchase one item from a downtown shop either November 6, or 7 to support downtown businesses that were unable to operate during fire fighting operations.
An appreciation fundraiser night also is in the planning stages.
The Estes Park CVB will be working with Partners for Commerce and other volunteers to facilitate upcoming efforts for the Bucket Brigade Fundraisers and appreciation events.
