MARSHALL FIRE RELIEF

We are not accepting physical donations at this time. Please do not call to offer donations of food or clothing because we need to keep our phone lines open to those are in need of assistance.

With over 1,000 homes destroyed by the Marshall Fire crisis, Sister Carmen is working hard to provide the following services to residents of East Boulder County, including Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, and Erie:

  • Food, hygiene, and baby items
  • Funds for temporary housing
  • Gift cards for food, clothing, and supplies
  • Access to our Thrift Store for clothing, bedding, and other essential items free of charge
  • Other resources as needs arise

We need your help. Right now, we need:

  • Monetary donations by donating online or mailing checks to Sister Carmen Community Center at 655 Aspen Ridge Dr, Lafayette, CO 80026
  • Gift cards to VISA, Target, Walmart, grocery stores, and local restaurants

If we need food, clothing, or any other physical items we will post these requests. Please be respectful and courteous to our staff and volunteers who are working very hard to support the community during this crisis. Questions? Contact kristen@sistercarmen.org.
