BOCO Dems – Marshall Fire: How to help community members in need


Editor’s Note: Press Releases are provided to Yellow Scene. In an effort to keep our community informed, we publish some press releases in whole. 

Our hearts are with our Boulder County community today, especially those directly affected by the Marshall Fire. While details are still emerging, we know that the devastation is unimaginable, yet real for so many families in Superior, Louisville and Boulder County. The needs in our community as a result of this fire are great.

That’s where our organization comes in.

The Boulder County Democratic Party has deep connections with our community, as well as human capacity to help. Party leadership is currently reaching out to assess needs and will be communicating ways to help over the next several weeks.

Today, we want to connect our members with vetted organizations who are accepting donations that will fund direct aid to fire victims.

Ways You Can Help Victims of the Marshall Fire

Volunteer – Do not self-deploy to the disaster site.

Donations to help those impacted

For Animals

Our community has been through so much this year. We’ve supported one another through tragedy, through COVID and through other hardships. Let us come together again to help devastated families today, and in the weeks, months and years to come.


Thank you,

Your BoCo Dems Officer Team

Shavonne Blades grew up on the West Coast but moved to Colorado in High School. She left for California after school and returned to Colorado in 1990. She got her start in media at the age of 21 in Santa Cruz, California as an advertising sales rep. Having no experience and nothing more than a couple of years as an art college attendee she felt the bug to work in media at a young age. She learned that by helping her customers with design and marketing, their campaigns would be far more successful and has made a 30+ year career in design, copywriting, and marketing for her clients. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPy4MMdcfLg. She has always chosen to work in Independent Media and believes deeply in the need for true, authentic Community Journalism. She is proud that YS has never compromised journalism standards in its 20+ history and continues to print YS on paper monthly while also expanding web coverage. She has worked at 3 Alternative Weeklies and founded Yellow Scene Magazine in 2000.
