Hold Your Donations For Now

The outpouring of community support for our weary firefighters is overwhelming. Thursday and Friday, All Things 81082 and the Trinidad Fire Department co-hosted a food drive for the East Fork Wildfire fire crews. The fire crews needed food and supplies. We put out a call to our readers and listed the things the fire crews needed.

And then the magic happened! Over the course of two days, the community responded in the most energizing and generous way possible. Our two fire stations are filled with donations leaving us beyond grateful and also thrilled to be able to distribute needed supplies to the fire crews.

The overabundance of donated items is causing problems.
Due to the overabundance of donated supplies, lack of storage space, and transportation problems in getting donated supplies to the fire crews due to steep terrain, Hoehne Fire Protection District Auxillary President Dominic "Junie" Verquer is asking potential donators not to donate any more items until further notice.
