Tri-Lakes Cares is offering immediate assistance for fire victims with food, clothing and gasoline. Further relief can be obtained by appointment to secure household goods, prescriptions, pet food, child/senior care, rent assistance and other services.

Tri-Lakes Cares is in need of heavy-duty flashlights and batteries, bug repellent for the firefighters, hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, baby wipes, deodorant and disposable razors, financial contributions and volunteers who can help fill shifts of volunteers who have been evacuated.

Visit Tri-Lakes Cares at 235 Jefferson Street in Monument for assistance or to donate. For further information call 719-481-4864.

The citizens of the Tri Lakes area have been most generous in their donations of food, clothing, toiletries and money in order to assist our neighbors affected by the Black Forest Fire.
