In response to the Waldo Canyon Fire, the Pikes Peak Community Foundation created The Waldo Canyon Fire Fighter’s Fund to support the efforts of public and volunteer fire departments in El Paso and Teller Counties. This fund will provide financial resources for the fire departments working on this effort – supporting any needs that may arise, from food and cots to firefighting equipment – as well as future wildfire mitigation efforts in the Pikes Peak region.
“This fund will help provide resources to the local Fire Departments that quickly responded to this fire. We want to support their efforts and help them sustain their hard work,” said Eric Cefus, director of philanthropic services for the Pikes Peak Community Foundation. “Donations to this fund will aid in these efforts affecting our whole community.”
