Jun 11, 2012 | Regional Focus

At the time of this posting the High Park Fire west of Fort Collins has burned over 37,000 acres, and there is no containment in sight according to public safety officials.

To keep up on what is going on visit the Fort Collins Coloradoan, North Forty News, Larimer County and the incident website.

What can you do to help? Consider making a donation. Here are a few ideas:

  • The Red Cross is determining the specific needs of people displaced by the fire. They indicate that the biggest way people can help is with financial donations. Call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit www.coloradoredcross.org/donate.
  • Ditto for the Salvation Army. They need financial donations, which can be made through Salvation Army’s website www.salvationarmyfortcollins.org, in person or by mail 3901 So. Mason Street or by calling 970 207-4472.
  • The Larimer Humane Society has a wish list of need, which you can find of the Coloradoan website and the Humane Society’s site, www.larimerhumane.org.
  • For information on volunteering call United Way of Larimer County at 211 or 970 406-7066.
