How You Can Help the Durango Community
As the 416 Fire continues to burn in the San Juan National Forest outside of Durango, our guests–both local and from afar–have been asking us how they can pitch in. Our community has come together during this increasingly difficult time to not only support the firefighters, but those who have been evacuated from their homes due to fire activity.
We’ve spent the last week hosting firefighters, serving plenty of pizza, and donating 500 pounds of produce to Manna Soup Kitchen. While our efforts have made a small dent, there’s still so much more that can be done! To help support our community, we’ve created this resource guide on ways you can pitch in. Keep checking back as this list gets updated through the next several weeks.
