American Furniture Warehouse, based in Englewood, has donated $ 1 million to victims who lost their homes in the Marshall fire.
The company announced Friday morning that it had donated 1,000 gift cards in the amount of $ 1,000 to support victims affected by the state’s most destructive wildfire.
“Our hearts go out to the families who lost everything,” CEO Jake Jabs said in a press release. “It’s our community, and we’re here for you.”
Boulder County officials determined 1,084 homes were destroyed and 149 more damaged as the blaze reached just over 1,600 acres last week.
More than half of the destroyed homes were in Louisville, while 378 others were in Superior, officials said.
Thousands of people from across the Centennial State and across the country rallied to help the victims of the blaze. As of Tuesday, the donor had donated more than $ 26.6 million to those affected by the fire.
In addition, more than 43,000 donors have contributed to the Boulder County Forest Fire Fund.
“Our community is going through an unimaginable tragedy right now,” Tatiana Hernandez, CEO of the Boulder County Community Foundation, said at a press conference on Tuesday. “The care you show is comforting.”
