Elevations Foundation expands relief to new wildfire
BOULDER, Colo. (9/17/10)--A new wildfire in Colorado has prompted Boulder-based Elevations Foundation to extend relief to a second area to help people affected by wildfires in the state. Last week, the foundation--which is the charitable arm of the more than $950 million asset Elevations CU--announced it would accept donations for the Fourmile Canyon fire relief efforts. That fire scorched thousands of acres and destroyed 166 homes in the foothills, just west of Boulder, said the foundation (News Now Sept. 10). Since then, another major wildfire has roared through an area just west of Loveland, said the foundation, which again moved quickly to establish a fund to support those relief efforts. "All money donated on behalf of the Reservoir Road fire will go directly to those aiding in this fire relief effort and to those families who have lost their homes or been displaced," said Gerry Agnes, president/CEO. "In addition, Elevations Foundation will match all donations up to $10,000 in total," Agnes said. The first fire directly affected a credit union employee who was evacuated and several members who lost their homes. Donations can be made at any of the nine Elevations CU branches, including its newest branch at Loveland. Members also can donate over the phone by calling 970-667-8585, 303-443-4672 or 800-429-7626. Credit union membership isn't required to donate. The foundation will accept donations through Sept. 30.
