4. The Four Mile Canyon Fire

In the middle of a contentious election season, Boulder County is seeing its worst disaster in decades.  It is hard to imagaine leaving your home knowing that when you get back … your home might not be there.  Hundreds of people are now homeless through no fault of their own. If you suddenly became homeless, where would you go?  Where would you take your pets?  This is a reality for our neighbors and friends.  While we will fight hard to see our candidates win in November, we also need to take care of our community TODAY.

Please come the office Grand Opening and bring some much-needed items for the most vulnerable fire survivors.

The Longmont Human Society is asking for:
1) Canned cat food
2) Non-clumping cat litter or pine pellets
3) Monetary donations to offset the overtime costs associated with the care and sheltering of these animals.

At this time they do NOT need dog food, thanks to everyone who has already donated.

They could also use the following:  hand sanitizers, small/medium size dog/cat treats. canned tuna (in water), Kong dog toys (preferably black).

Hope to see you all at the Grand Opening and let us Pray for Rain.


Jonathan Singer
Longmont Area Democrats President
