LITTLETON, CO – Residents at Sky Pointe Retirement Resort in Littleton, Colorado announced they have raised and contributed $8,200 to relief efforts following the fires in the Grand Lake region.
The funds contributed by Sky Pointe residents will benefit
eight first responders and their families whose homes were destroyed in the
fires. The fundraiser, organized as a
GoFundMe by the family of the fire department's assistant fire chief, has
garnered more than $350k of its $500k goal.
Sky Pointe is second on the list of top donors.
"This past week has been devastating to many, many families,"
said the fundraiser's organizer. Eight…homes belonged to the first responders
that gave all their energy, sleep and time to protect their community against
this tragedy. Nothing we can say or do will bring their homes back, but what we
can do is help get them on their feet and rebuild their future."
Sky Pointe residents share a culture of philanthropy and rallied together to
make a difference in response to the current events that have affected so many. Sky Pointe Community Manager Martha Clampitt
was not surprised by the residents' generosity. "They wanted to do something by
seniors for local families, and that they did!" Hendrickson stated.
